Something in a book caught my eye yesterday. As things are wont to do. The book concerned is Lingo—of which I’ve spoken before. Its author is Gaston Dorren.
Now, it’s a library book, so I only underlined the 2 lines lightly in pencil. They occur in my copy at the foot of page 251. They read:
After all, people without schooling can’t read and write any language
Isn’t that an interesting statement?
I guess it depends what he means by the word ‘schooling’. There’re all sorts of versions. Me, I tend to disagree. Teachers and schools aren’t necessary, IMHO.
