Going E-Primitive

To be or not to be? That is the question. -Shakespeare

E-Prime describes a version of the English language that does not use the verb “to be”. As you may find out with a little research on the internet, various reasons encourage the adoption of such a practice for writing and speaking.

Your internet search probably won’t turn up an even more interesting notion: indigenous languages don’t seem to have a proper verb “to be”.
