These days the language used to communicate via cell phone and text is so far from the correct English we were taught.

Mona Chalabi argues that those who correct others’ language are clinging to conventions that are unimportant. Grammar snobs are patronising, pretentious and just plain wrong.

“We should spend more time listening to what others have to say, and less focusing on the grammar what they say it with.”

Do you agree?
