You may be thinking that this video exposes that his knowledge of the make-up of our language and terminology used to describe it is a bit on the light side. You may also have noticed that his rant on “the general population [having] just stopped caring” is based on an irrelevant paradigm of what’s right and what’s wrong.
I did too. However, how this video spoke to me was, ironically, opposite to his point: The way we use language, with all our spoken grammatical incorrectness, dichotomous pronunciation, relaxed speech patterns and word roots from the global kitchen sink, is fine. In fact, it’s what students need to be more exposed to in order to gain competent comprehension and participate in meaningful interactions with native speakers.
