    Do they teach you to slaughter the english language, like you’re doing, or what?

    The English language has been slaughtered by everyone. Journalists are some of the worst culprits. You are slaughtering it yourself by adding ?or what?? to the end of your sentence. It is completely unnecessary and sounds like a thuggish yob being emotive.

    ?Do they teach you to slaughter the english language, like you’re doing, or what??

    If you are telling me that I am doing something, then why contradict the statement by asking if I am actually doing it?

    I like most people do not always bother to write in complete perfection when replying on Internet forums. Blame the rise in text communication and of instant messaging.

    As we are on the subject, Journalism is littered with hundreds of examples of good English being ?slaughtered? with overused clich?s and sloppy puns. When I was younger I always thought ?The Sun? was written by people on council estates.

    True story.

    Here is a great example of traditional English being slaughtered, from the Sky News website.

    “The Sk8er Boi singer said she did not care for Hilary Duff either”

    If you were not familar with text communication, then you might have trouble recognising the word.

    It doesn’t take much effort to write “You” instead of “U”. You’re not using a mobile phone! I’m sorry if “,or what?” offended you, but english isn’t my first language. I just think it’s sad that I’m one of the only people here who bother writing proper english. “U heard me!” is a disgrace, especially knowing you’re studying broadcast journalism and that you’re clearly able to express your views in a much more mature and educated language.

    I find calling it a “disgrace” a bit irrational. The way something is written, especially on an Internet forum often symbolises how someone is feeling. I wrote you with a “u” because I was feeling flippant and conversational. Its just slang. I could have been really formal and polite and say something like, ” Good evening, I am enquiring to see if anyone else is currently studying a degree in Broadcast Journalism”, but why would I? , this is a casual place.

    I am 18 and still feel that I am young enough to type casually when online. These forums are suppose to be chilled out, contempory places for irreverent statements , not areas for language analysis. In short, get a life!

    I guess we’ll have to agree to disagree. I can accept the “U R here 4 a lot of fun” language in chat rooms, but then again, you’d never find me in one.
