In the 18th century English grammar books were being published, which added a greater demand on vocabulary in vernacular. This demand increased as the vernacular lexicon began to stabilize. Dictionaries were still elementary with only a short meaning, synonym or commentary on a ward.it was the grammarians who were still making decisions about language usage. Grammarians had been experiencing within their own ranks for sometime. Many linguistics were afraid that the English would be corrupted, and some expressed the concern that what was being written at that time would would be unrecognizable to future generations.

English was not ideal for literature.
Kamm explains how critics are judging people’s use of the English language unjustly and how he disagrees with this. He describes how people grow up speaking a certain way by instinct and observation, similar to scholarly linguists, rather than by using stylistic conventions, as pedants would. Kamm expresses his disagreement with pedantry, which, in his opinion, is a discourteous act of misconception and should instead be replaced with general usage of the language. He claims that people should get rid of the idea that Standard English is the only correct form of English and in the process achieve social and linguistic
On the other hand, Krashen (1988) also explained that the learned system is the result of a very formal way of learning a language that involves the conscious process of being knowledgeable about a language. This includes learning grammatical rules and semantic structure making. Krashen (1988) concludes that learning is less important than acquisition. However, he explains that this distinction is crucial as it explains how a big majority of adults are able to possess a second language.

The Traditional / Conventional approach to the teaching of literature in English leads the study of literature to frozen state. The traditional approaches talk about the past glories, histories and imaginative stories. In order to make the literature study more scientific and realistic, the comparative approach may help the culture cross students and research scholars. Gerald Gilespie claims that comparative literature is a new form of literary criticism employed in all form or trends such as structuralism, deconstruction, semiotics, and psycho- analysis and so on. Again he proclaims that “Comparative analysis” is a two way flow is resulting from already established efforts at building bridges to Non- European traditions.
“You and Samuel Clemens are the opposite of each other. Whereas Clemens wrote with terrible grammar to show Toms and Hucks verbal skills, you write with a great command of the English language. “However, you talk like a southern hick.” He went on to explain that though my reading and writing skills were well established my verbal skills were severely impeded. And that to be taken serious I needed to work on speaking as well as I wrote. He then asked me about my major and minor.
