Thank you  Dr Gareth , 
I got the point , but I confess you have created through your few weeks of monitoring very ' hot' debates , free of censorship  . Thank you for this .

Dr Motari,

If you actually read my post - and the subsequent posts - you will see
that these are *not* my observations, nor are they my views (and quite
diametrically opposed to them). The quote is from a piece in the
London Evening Standard (the link is here:

)

Best,

Gareth

Dear Gareth ,
Concerning  your observation on youth speaking English in an
'inappropriate way' follwing the standards , I think that the role of
a linguist is to decribe the linguistic situations and not to
prescribe how people ought to speak . So, I understand your worries
but we have nothing to do because it is a part of the natural human
linguistic behaviour that we should observe , discuss and comment
without judging !

all the best
Dr Mostari
Algeria
