Strangely self contradictory.
on 2 February 2016
What he has written is no clearer or easier to grasp than
the writing he criticises. In the light of what has happened
to the teaching of English over the last thirty or so years,
his comment on the unimportance of grammar and syntax
might suggest that he contributed to a major problem.
So not only unimpressive, but perhaps unintentionally
retrograde. Amazingly poor for a man with such a
reputation. A major lesson in itself.
