However, linguists such as Victoria Fromkin, Robert Rodman, George Gadda, William Labov, John McWhorter, and L.M. Myers view the notion of a "standard" variety of English as illusory. They argue that the designations of language varieties as "standard" or "non-standard" are based on socioeconomics and politics, rather than logic; other dialects are, in fact, as logical as SAE....   [tags: English language, Dialect, Grammar]
