Contemporary Philosophical Comments for the Day, Courtesy of an Everyday Man on the Street

“You’re not like that in real life, so don’t be like that on Facebook.”

– enlightened man on the street, an English teacher, living in South Korea

Cited from the innermost mind of the blog author:

“One of the most grating linguistic phenomenons of the last days was the deterioration of human speech and diction into a series of ever escalating, and more or less meaningless, abbreviations. People, especially the very young, began to speak and text each other  in their own abbreviated language, which reflected a plunge from actual speech and diction into sputtered bursts of jargon instead. When common street speech, gang vernacular and slurred pronunciation were added into the mix, what emerged instead of human language was a chopped up rehash of ‘webslang’ which did not sound altogether different from the chattering of chimpanzees or other primitive primates from a half million years earlier.”
