Language evolves

Stumbled across the official Wikipedia entry for “teh”, aka, “the” in Internetspeak. A lot of language purists grumble about the corruption of language in text messaging, instant messaging, and other forms of visual/textual-based internet communication. I rarely argue with them, mostly because people like that not interested in hearing it from the other point of view. But the simple fact is, whether they like it or not, language is constantly changing, evolving, and txt-speak, leetspeak, or internet slang is a very real part of that evolution and it is not going away. It’s no more “wrong” than American English is compared to British English.And may I humbly suggest that this “corruption” or evolution, or whatever you chose to call it, is actually a good thing? More words, more ways to express yourself, more possible nuances to utilize in the craft of putting words together in a cunning order. Just think about it.
