Why Do We Always Nit-Pick French Grammar?
Posted Oct 21, 2013
Why do we Haitians always nit-pick French grammar? We seem to do this much more so than the French and Americans do for their respective languages. I’ve seen entire online conversations get derailed because someone erroneously used an “accent aigu” instead of an “accent grave”, or made a slight error in applying the correct tense or grammatical conjugation. Of course there are situations where even the slightest grammatical errors are unacceptable, but sometimes we just can’t seem to shake that “I’m-still-in-school” mentally where the most inconsequential errors need to be corrected.
