Here’s an article from the UK Guardian newspaper on the use of grammar metalanguage in UK primary school tests!
Apologies in advance. That was a bit of a premature publication! I had meant to tie it in with a post from 2013, linked above, and to point out that Dick Hudson has a long connection with English language education, including a book called “Teaching Grammar: A Guide for the National Curriculum” (Blackwell, 1992), and so I suspect that he has never promoted metalanguage for its own sake. Another example of “out-of-touch” linguists, or just plain “expert-bashing”?
