R.I.P English, old friend
2012 is approaching, the world is ending. I’m sure there are skeptics out there among you but the signs cannot be ignored. What signs you ask? You’ve seen them all but none is more frightening and convincing than the imminent death of the English language.
For those of you who haven’t heard the following can now be found in the Oxford English Dictionary. “LOL” “OMG” “FYI” and even the heart icon “♥”
Thats right. “♥”! If youre going to start including little pictures in there i suggest you throw in a middle finger and put it right infront of the word English. Might as well finish the job.
Now, im not one to say the English language shouldnt change at all.
But this?! It appears we have to live in a world where “”OMG! LOL’s in the OED. LMAO!”” may soon be a legitimate, grammaticaly sound sentence passable in a formal setting. Oh the horror!
