The End of English?

By singit, Springfield, OH

Open a text and you see the shortened words, uncompleted sentences, and no punctuation. You open a magazine or a paper and you will see shortened sentences and unimaginative views. You can ever open a novel and see the shortened version of words and sentences though they are more creative than the magazines and papers.

Not too long ago before our technological boom people spoke in better English. Hard to believe. Now that we are shortening our messages, sentences, and conversations we must try not to lose our own language.

Think of dear Jane Austen or Emily Brontë or William Shakespeare coming into our present to see everything so dreadful. English classes hardly teaching us; instead training us a stale, worn out method of answering standardized test questions.
