Natives break the rules of their language. They do so in English just as they do in every language because most people just donít sit and think about the grammatical legality of their usage while speaking. They could, and perhaps Samuel Johnson did. But, the rules of English have often been as much the problem as the solution, and you can actually blame some of that on Dr. Johnson and his cohorts. Many of the prescriptive rules of English were written in the 17th Century by the likes of Johnson and other early English grammarians and they were written down a good 200 years before the birth of modern linguistics
