Description

The following piece brushes over a brief history of the English language and contributors to its grammar. Once the "father of modern linguistics" established his theories, we move forward in time and witness modern-day experiments taking place putting Chomsky's fundamental grammar theories of "innate reactions" to the test. Once taking a breather from English grammar, we'll notice some of the influential dialects that English has succumb to within its infancy. These influences from centuries ago have affected our modern-day language as we know it. We don't seem to think about how our language was created and the time that was invested in creating its scaffolding for what it is today. Once brushing off the dust of English, we'll be able to rediscover our roots as modern day English speakers and pay homage to the individuals that prescribed us with it.
