Linguistics deviation, a tool for teaching English grammar: evidence from Percy B. Shelley’s poem

Eyi Isaac Ngulube, A. Sandra Uloma Harry

Abstract


We have always advocated that those teaching the Use of English must seek out novel ways of teaching the grammar of English to take out the drudgery of the present approach. Here, we proposed using Linguistic deviation as a tool for teaching English grammar. This approach will produce students who are both strong in the grammar of English and literature in English. The organization of this paper is simple: 1 is the preliminary remarks, 2 is the text (the poem) for analyses, and 3 is the explication of the concept of linguistic deviation, and 4 appreciation of the poem while 5 is the application to the teaching of English grammar.
