How does twain Twain's selection of verbs contribute to the tone of the story and to the characterization of Huckleberry ?

One of the most pronounced errors in grammar is the unacceptable usages of verbs. Pronoun and verb usage are easily detected by one's ears, and errors in either of these usages are judged signs of one's lack of education and lower socio-economic background. In Mark Twain's novel, Huck Finn has a flagrantly poor verb usage, a grammatical fault that points to his poorer education and lack of strong parental supervision.
