Do you think social media and technology are destroying the English language?
I'm not a grammar Nazi, but it sure seems like the English language has taken a huge hit. Do you think so? Why or why not?
Absolutely. Abbreviations have already amputated some of English words. The constant confusion between "their" and "there", "your" and "you're", alteration of original meanings due to poor knowledge or vocabulary are all signs of our time. Primitive speech we are reduced to in our sms- and pop culture is to blame.
If they are it hasn't altered the way that I write. My GRANDMA hasn't changed because of it. LOL. What am I like?
I think mankind is destroying the English language.
Social media and technology are but means to convey a message. People are still responsible for writing the mesage and thus misspelling the message as well.
Yes! Everything is abbreviated so much that some people just have NO idea how words are actually spelled anymore.
