Assunto:  Re: The native speaker's authority
 
Mensagem:  I do realize that a native speaker of a language would be seen as being more "authorized" when it comes to "sounds". However, this is not what I was trying to point out. What I was really trying to say is that when it comes to ARTICULATING how a given formal language works, the COMPETENT non-native speaker is just as "authorized" as the native one. In fact, to a certain extent the competent non-native speaker is even more fluent in articulating how a foreign language works. The fact that the vast majority of native American speakers aren't able to explain clearly how the English language works is one example. For instance, I bet if you ask Pat to explain to you how a basic sentence is made in English, he wouldn't know unless he looks it up in a book. I'm speaking from experience. Where I live there are only native English speakers. -Miguel Vieira
