This report has been prepared to determine or bring out the relationship of oral and written English.
This report will try to find out whether a pupil who makes a great number of errors in speaking does the same in his writing.
The main reason for studying this problem is the prevalence of serious grammatical errors made in both writing and speaking. A child learns to speak before he learns to write. He gets his speech from those about him. It is possible that speech makes a deep impression on written English. If this is true, we want t o find how far the Influence extends.
So far as we know bibliographical material is not to be had. A study of this problem was made at Prairie View College by Miss M. L. Glossom, and a report made of her study in May, 1934.
If there is found to be a correlation between spoken and written English, a knowledge of the fact may help to solve the problem of some difficulties in written English.
