Lexophiles say grammar matters

Biology major Mario Hernandez recalls that his teachers in the past always told him to never start a sentence with the word “because.”

“Then I got to college, and my English teachers said I could,” he said. “I didn’t know who to believe and had a hard time those first few semesters.”

This is just one rule students have difficulty with when using “correct” grammar. However, which is correct? According to experts, that depends on which method of linguistics used.

There are two types: descriptive and prescriptive. According to oxforddictionary.com, descriptive language is “describing or classifying in an objective and non-judgmental way.” Under this method, descriptivists believe non-standard usage shouldn’t be thought of as “wrong.”
