What is is the
use of of learning
To answer this question, two wrong ideas must be
One is the theory of grammatical uselessness.
The second is the theory of universal grammar.
The former think grammar is useless, do not need to learn.
The ancients did not learn grammar, but also write good articles,
I have not learned grammar today, still write books.
The latter is the opposite, that the grammar is too
important, do not learn grammar to write bad articles.
Either way, neither attitude is comprehensive, it can only
be a bias. The former reason is that everyone can talk and speak
with their own grammar. But talking is not always good. In
particular, the written language is not a colloquial language, it is
required to be improved, and there can be no grammatical
errors, and punctuation is not allowed to be wrong. Especially
Chinese teachers, it is not necessary to learn grammar well. If
you don’t learn grammar well, you will not be able to parse the
composition, nor can you analyze the long sentences and
difficult sentences in the text. They forget that chairman MAO
has repeatedly referred to the teachings of grammar, rhetoric
and logic. Every middle school student in Europe has to pass
strict grammar teaching and training to get a diploma.
On the other hand, grammar (grammar) is everything, and
exaggeration. To write a good essay, the first is to have the
correct political thought, logical thinking, clear organization,
historical knowledge and rich social experience. In the end, we
should pay attention to grammar and rhetoric. But do not use
the grammar death formula, also do not use the dead grammar
rules to find fault, to find a sick sentence. Because, language
disease is mostly in the vocabulary, logic, not all in the grammar.
The right attitude should be:
(1) Chinese grammar is useful and should be learned.
Learning more and learning less can vary from person to person.
(2) primary school students can learn less grammar,
secondary school students should learn. After graduating from
high school to go through rigorous grammar training. Some
different Chinese and European inflectional grammar, simple
grammar do not have to learn … …. This is a sophistry argument.
(3) Chinese language teachers in secondary schools must
learn well and individual teachers become experts in Chinese
(4) the university liberal arts grammar teacher and the
liberal arts language professional research worker should be the
right language grammar expert.
