am Sat Back again to that moot word aint MAIL IN RECENT weeks has brought me at least a dozen clippings of an extremely funny little cartoon which had appeared in the New Yorker magazine Its at the expense of the New Webster In ternational Dictionary but Im sure Philip Gove the editor of that highly controversial vol ume must have drawn a good chuckie from it The cartoon is set in the of fices of G C Merriam Dic tionary Division An austere woman behind a desk obvious ly a secretary or receptionist is shown looking up at a bearded visitor bearing brief case in one hand hat in the other Under the drawing one meaningful line Sorry Dr Gove aint in This ribbing with drawing pen followed by one issue of the New Yorker an extended and critical review of the Third International by Dwight Mc Donald As Ive pointed out in a previous commentary Mc Donald just couldnt find much that was good in the kingsize volume Despite the claim by Editor Gove that the new dictionarys stand on the word aint has been misrepresented by critics it still seems to me to symbolize the permissive approach with which the Third International has been compiled But first lets be clear on just what the new book does say about aint After setting forth the words for which it is employed as a contraction it proceeds in these words Though disapp roved by many and more common in less educated speech less educated than what isnt aint is used orally in most parts of the US by many cultivated speakers especially in the phrase aint I Substandard as have not I aint seen him you aint told us and as has not he aint got the time aint the doctor come That seems to me to come quite close to an open endorse ment of aint by the makers of the Third International In a personal note from Editor Gove which I have presented rather fully I was chastised verbally for saying that I havent up to now heard aint used except in jest by anybody who even pretends to be educated Even lower down the scale of lexical values in my own listing is a product of abysmal ignorance pronounced irre gardless But this new dic tionary can find nothing more critical to say about this hy brid than that it is a probable blend of irrespective and re gardless and that it is non standard What should have been said is that there is no such word Thats how I feel about the matter But in candor I must admit that my feelings are not shared by all of the dozens who have taken time out to give me their reactions to my previous commentaries on the subject The great preponderance of my mail 90 per cent at least has been in approval of my view point but Ive heard from some with a contrary point of view So I know its a debatable ques tion From a friend who was gradu ated from of the nations foremost schools of speech and has spent the past 20 years on a university campus came this stimulating comment I believe firmly in stand ards not only for language but for manners and morals But who is to set them For a long time
