Has anyone noticed how hard it is to type with their accent?

Kind of befuddling...but fun!

Well, my spelling and that...grammar thingy aint too good, my keyboard (that one or two words?) sticks, and sometimes I'm just too lazy to fix the errors.

So long as the message gets out....so what!

No wonder my dad hated the Nazis. I must have misunderstood him, because he was a pow. He was probably talking about grammar Nazis.

I do it all the time. Error correction doesn't say it is wrong since I added the words I commonly use to the error correction library.

Its more and more prevalent these days with devices to text with. If we keep going like this combining and incorrectly separating and abbreviating our language as we do, the English language will all but disappear. And the English language is one of the most beautiful in the world.

Its astounding to see just WHO does this...even college educated persons who know better. Its sad that to communicate has become fast, simple and incorrect. One word that bugs me when used? "Prolly"...for probably. Is it that hard to use the right word, spelled correctly, and used in correct context...and in the correct tense?

Its pure laziness. OP? Watch the kind of replies your thread here generates. Thanks for speaking out on this subject! MS

Evolution of language? Huh??? No such thing.
Also, the examples you gave are called contractions, not evolution of language LMAO. Do not don't etc. iPod on the other hand is a brand name LMAO

Some people need to go back to school.

Well, it could be argued that LMAO is a sort of evolution in language.

I had a habit when I was younger of writing "shouldn't've", for "should not have". I was told it was a bad idea because it's not really a word, but I didn't care. There's no reason "shouldn't" is appropriate use of conjunctive grammar and "shouldn't've" is not. Hell, I invent words all the time by taking suffixes with similar meanings and functions and switching them out on the fly because I can't remember the official word. "Conglomerize", "persnickate" (to be persnickety in manner) and other stuff because my mind is always on the run and I kinda have to shove sentences into my mouth and fire them off before I lose the opening in my train of thought.

I suppose you could be correct but it's an evolved language or acronym rather from the web. The word lot has been around prior. Alot is just simply incorrect.

Alot is just simply incorrect

I agree.
Even though I was an English and Philosophy/logic major, I often find myself making mistakes that fortunately most of the time the spell checker and context checker catch.
They don't always though.
Doggone It.

I use alot a lot. It's called the evolution of language.

Like don't, doesn't, IPod etc, etc.


Ummm, no. There is no evolution involved with that, just poor spelling.

The one that bugs me is when people referring to a person then use "that" instead of "who" or "whom." I'm sorry but people are not "that."

Oh, and it's iPod.

No, it won't disappear, but it will become unrecognizable from what most of us know. English is as much structure as it is the words. There are some dialects of English in some Asian speaking countries that have so heavily adopted Asian words that they are unrecognizable as English to most English speakers, but in structure they are unmistakably English.
