U folks shld speak proper like i do

Posted by weehaggis on Monday, September 8, 2008

Is the English langauge evolving into SMS speak, with all words abbreviated to list of consonants and phonetic spellings?  As the Telegraph explains, apparently so.  Brit kids find spelling and English grammar too difficult so we should encourage dumbing things down.  This is the opinion of John Wells, Emeritus Professor of Phonetics at University College London.  We need to free kids from the “burden” or learning!!!  American-isms should be encourgaed….oh boy, that really is dumbing things down.  Just look at who Americans vote for….to represent and speak for them on the world stage 🙂

And for something completely different –

Finally, a voice a reason amongst all the Google sycophants proclaiming Chrome as the second coming.  With a healthy dose of humour, sense, and fuckin shit bollox langauge….El Reg does it again 🙂

PS. will post some more stuff about my recent travels to Cracow, Warsaw and Berlin real soon…..promise 🙂  Just waiting until i get round to uploading all the pics to flickr.
