Conference Talks:
Exploding the Myth of Unruly Book of Mormon Grammar:
A Look at the Excellent Match with Early Modern English

Stanford Carmack

Summary: The grammar of the Book of Mormon has been naively criticized since its publication in 1830. The supposedly bad grammar is a match with language found in the Early Modern English textual record. Syntactic usage, especially past tense with did and the command construction, points only to that era. Book of Mormon language exhibits well-formed variation typical of the 16th and 17th centuries.
