Sample text

As we have seen, people who speak only one language have areas in which they are especially skilled (for example, skin diving, knitting, pigeon-fancying) and areas of complete ignorance. So do bilinguals. The problem is that people do not judge bilinguals by the standards they use to judge monolinguals: they judge them with reference to an impossible ideal, the ‘native speaker’ who supposedly speaks all possible varieties of his language, who can, linguistically speaking, do everything in all domains and on all topics in his language.

The problem is that people do not judge bilinguals by the standards they use to judge monolinguals: they judge them with reference to an impossible ideal, the ‘native speaker’ who supposedly speaks all possible varieties of his language, who can, linguistically speaking, do everything in all domains and on all topics in his language. If we look at the people we meet in the course of a single day, we see that we are requiring far more of the bilingual in both his languages than we would dream of expecting of a monolingual in one.

To insist that the ‘real’ meaning of ‘enthusiastic’, for example, is ‘to be inspired by a god’ is either pedantry or a failure to understand what people who use the word nowadays are trying to convey.

Only scientifically defined terms such as H2O have a single unambiguous meaning; ‘water’, on the other hand, can mean a number of different things: ‘He watered the garden’, ‘His mouth watered’, ‘The proposition was watered down’ and so on.
