Professor: The best users of a language are its great authors. However, these authors often use language in ways that are innovative and idiosyncratic, and are therefore less respectful of the strictures of proper usage than most of us are.

The Professor’s statements, if true, most support which one of the following?


(A) People who want to become great writers should not imitate great authors’ use of language.

(B) Writers who do not observe proper language usage risk developing a peculiar or idiosyncratic style.

(C) Those most talented at using a language are not as likely as most other people to observe proper language usage.

(D) People who use an innovative or idiosyncratic writing style often incur criticism of their language usage.

(E) The standard for what constitutes proper language usage should be set by the best users of a language.
