I read the essay by Baldwin. It’s a very interesting essay. In his whole essay, all the example was logical. He used simple words but they were very effective. In his whole essay he harshly criticize about white language policy.
But In whole essay I liked the second paragraph. Which is,
“People evolve a language in order to describe and thus control their circumstances or in order not to be submerged by a reality that they cannot articulate…….. They each have very different realities to articulate or control.”
In this paragraph he want to say about same language has different style.
This style may different because of speaking style (accent). Or because of choosing their word. But in this paragraph he lighten up on articulate.
Paragraph of is this essay take my interest because, in my native language I saw the same thing every language have grammatical rule, correct pronunciation, But all people can’t say it same way. In my country, in rural area their pronunciation is different and they have different accent too. We who are educated, live in Cities we think that they are wrong. Yes they might wrong but they still speak in Bengali.
