Sensitivity to Usage Errors in Writing

Annotated Research

Question: Who are more sensitive to usage errors in writing: business people or educators?

Answer: “Found that business persons were more sensitive to error than educators.” LA Spiegel. 1990. P. 246.

Comment: So what? If anything, it just means that educators should emphasize with their students usage errors that count. RayS.
