Elements of Style, the rap version [video]

Fri 2012-Feb-17 @ MYT 09:08:56 am

If you’ve ever been unfortunate enough to have had formal journalism training, you might have come across mention of The Elements of Style, by Strunk & White. It’s a standard text in US j-schools, taken with the AP Manual of Style as the equivalent of the word of god. But enough of the new aristocracy of the petit bourgeois.

Yobs like us, who once struggled mightily with the remains of Standard Malaysian English, might like a taste of how the new Standard Transatlantic Malaysian is sweeping away what’s left of Ridout’s Irregulars together with the cobwebs.

It’s the new dialectical materialism.

Thank you very much.
Not at all.
