I am doing Masters in English Literature, In one of the books I read that there is nothing like 'Wrong English', there are so many dialects in the wrold that each type of English is correct English.
And to examplify there are some sentences:
"I aint do nothing"
"I don't do nothing"
Although there are two negatives in the sentence which makes it positive and according to standard English it is the wrong form.But it is the correct form in many regions of the world.
They also argue that there is no "standard English" , because with respect to region, standards of English change.
Now this all is very confusing for me because okay I got the idea that there are different dialects and each type of sentence formation is supposed to be correct in one or another English. But then why people make fun if someone writes,speaks English which defies the standards of English/American-English?
If this 'No worng English' is a widely acepted idea(I'm assuming it is, as it appears in text books) then why there is no awareness of it?I hadn't heard about it prior doign Masters.
Is it accepted by native English Speakers?
