The problem with Weird Al’s ‘Word Crimes’

Amen.

When I first started writing, my narration tended to speak in a So Cal vernacular. I got shit from every editor I used regarding the grammar outside of dialog to which I’d always, and still do, point to Huck Finn. I’m slow so it took me some years to realize they thought I wanted to be Mark Twain, which I do, but grammar changes with class because educational opportunities change with class. Huck Finn is a great example of that. Far too many of these grammar nazis are unrealized classist, but we don’t talk about classism in America. Spell check doesn’t even like the words.

I can sadly testify to the truth of this statement.

This happened nearly 4 years ago, and it still makes me cringe. Long story short my client robbed at gun point a Walgreens, a gas station and a bank yet all she made out with was a candy bar at the end of her spree.
