NBC Nightly News: November 10, 2005 - 6:30 PM EST

Americans' bad grammar costly. When the words are far from perfect and the boss has had enough.

Brian Williams, "We're in a bad grammar epidemic in this country. Perhaps, you've seen signs of it yourself in memos, documents, and computer-speak on the internet. Grammar and spelling have really gone the way of the black-and-white television set these days. What happened to the English language? Why has grammar gotten increasingly WORSER?" "It seems us Americans ain't talking too good, don't write worth a lick, and worser with emails." states NBC's Roger O'Neil. "Our grammar, punctuation, and spelling are/is abysmal. And Corporate America is saying STOP! A recent survey found that Fortune 500 companies are spending more than 3 billion dollars per year retraining workers in Basic English. Even writers have trouble writing." Business Writing Instructor, Roger S. Peterson, states "We simply now must salvage American English."
