    Default New language of the future?

    I remember when I used to look down my nose in disdain at the youth of today, and their text speak and illiteracy.

    But really, are we old fuddy duddys who are hanging onto a familiar soon to be archaic language?

    Is the dictionary going to be whittled down to GTFO, WTF, FTW and OMG?

    I'm so crap at it, my brother will leave his msn window open to go toilet, and I will jump on and pretend to be him, and within one sentence (I swear on my chances of winning the lottery that this is true) they will say "you're not seff" why? because I used a capital letter at the start of my sentence and punctuated my sentence correctly.

    I think they are freaks, they think I am a freak.

    What do you think? is txt spk ere 2 sty?

    Get with the program, Ella. Everyone knows the language of the future is Mandarin.

    All the new fang dangled speech throws me too lass. I'm forever looking stuff up in I think they call it the urban dictionary.

    "is that what they call it honey"

    "yes dear"

    I'm with you, "LEET" has always confused the hell out of me:

    WikiAnswers - What is leet

    Urban Dictionary: l33t

    Gack! I'm an old fogey too!

    Firefly. Such a nerd. Good thing I like nerds.

    According to my INTJ friends, I am the "prescriptivist grammar monkey." I am the epitome of "archaic fogy," even among yesterday's standards.

    My youngest sister never ceases to amaze me. The other day she wrote "DALIY CHORES" for her weekly chore list. She seems incapable of spelling the simplest of things, and simple mathematics that I had memorized she requires a calculator for.

    I don't know if I'm entirely out of the techno-era, but I definitely hold spelling and grammar in substandards. I can at least tell when I'm incapable of spelling a word, whereas my sister seems to just plow through it without ever wondering. I can't say which is better, but I do know that language is the way of the world.

    If you cannot properly communicate, you cannot do much of anything. It is communication, and saying what you want to say, and knowing which words to use to say it, will get you far. I'm glad I know that I can structure at least my written language well enough.

    It's my impression that if you have a habit of cussing, you'll cuss even when you don't mean to.. I can only assume the same can be said of your grammar.
    Kantgirl: Just say "I'm feminine and I'll punch anyone who says otherwise!"
    Halla74: Think your way through the world. Feel your way through life.

    Cimarron: maybe Prpl will be your girl-bud
    prplchknz: i don't like it
