Please join us for The Life and Death of English Grammar by Dr. Michael Crafton, University Provost and Professor of English. If grammar has a history, then grammar must change. Yet if grammar changes, is there such a thing as correct grammar? Correctness often depends on local conditions, yet some grammatical errors can be so severe that even their mother would not claim them. Come find out just how well/good you understand the differences. Reception with light refreshments begins at 6:00 pm and the lecture will begin at 6:30 p.m. Please note that no alcohol is served at this event. Registration is requested as seating is limited.
