“English is not normal” – a blog post by John McWhorter

by Jeanette Sakel

I just found this blog post by John McWhorter, writing about why English is quite weird (typologically). Worth a read, especially since level 1 and 2 students will discuss aspects of this in class, and it’ll be relevant for those doing CHEL at level 3, too.

What do you think? Here’s the link to the article.
