Just read this Freshly Pressed post No Speaka da English.
I sadly believe Grammar’s slow and painful death is a global deal. The same thing is happening with Spanish and I’m pretty sure with almost every language in the world.
I love the world-wide web (salutations Timothy “Tim” John Berners-Lee) and how everyone can be connected by the amazing technology out there. If we only could resist falling prey to the “microwave” phenomena. Instant gratification is fascinating but it is also detrimental in so many levels.
As social media usage becomes part of our daily routines, I’m pretty sure we all have or will at some point in our lives commit grammar attacks that could make many squinch as if they just heard someone filing their nails on blackboards. (remember blackboards? I do ha ha ha)
Let’s just be conscientious about it and make an effort not to let our languages die. Impatience rules the microwave generation. We are human beings for crying out loud, let it be us who rule our lives and how we communicate with each other and not a feeling of intolerance and irritability. God gave us brains for some reason, all we have to do is use them.
And now for your viewing pleasure, graphic thoughts to sleep on 😉
