Queen’s English Society throws in the towel
The QES website states that:
The Society campaigns to encourage high standards of written and spoken English, which have been found to be lamentably low among school-leavers and even university graduates. One of its principal campaigns is for better and explicit English language education and regular constructive correction of errors in English language in schools. The Society arranges meetings, lectures and courses, promotes research, publishes members’ work and provides media comment.
One achievement of the QES was to help shape the spelling, punctuation and grammar elements of English in the national curriculum.
Are there similar organisations in other countries? I know that are language academies in some places, such as L’Académie française in French, but about in other countries?
Do any aspects of language usage bother you?
