Study: Trump's Grammar at Fifth-Grade Level

Study: Trump's Grammar at Fifth-Grade Level
 

Saturday, 19 March 2016 03:13 PM EDT

 Though by his own admission Donald Trump has "a very good brain," a new study suggests his wordplay isn't exactly Shakespearian in scope.

The study, by the Language Technologies Institute at Carnegie Mellon University, reports that the real estate mogul's grammar is at a fifth-grade level. The rest of the 2016 candidates’ grammar was scored between sixth- and eighth-grade levels.

The study, first reported in The Hill, examined about 40 speeches delivered by Trump, GOP rivals Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio, and Democratic candidates Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders.

All candidates performed better when graded on their vocabulary skills, but the avowed socialist Bernie Sanders did best. Sanders scored highest in vocab, ranking at the 11th-grade level in the speech he made announcing his candidacy. But Trump and Clinton both scored at the eighth-grade level for vocab in the speeches announcing their candidacies. Cruz’s inaugural speech was at the ninth-grade level.
