Our language should remain formal because if we used "slang words", many people would not understand them or we would become lazier as a society. When we sign our name, fill out an application, or write an email, we do it in a formal way to look professional. Using 'u" , "wdym", and many other things for important moments is something not smart, or professinal.
Our language should be formal, but not all the time. We speak on average 7,000 words a day. Every person has a different life and jobs. In a business setting you should speak formally. When you are with friends its okay to speak informally.
I believe our language should differ when we do different things, we don't always have to be extremely formal. I feel as if it's okay to use abbreviations while sending a text message, but it's not okay when you're writing an essay for school. Gretchen McCulloch was right when he said we didn't learn our ways from the internet, but what comes with time is also the ability to adapt to new things. The internet will never go away and it's evolution is okay. In the article Because Internet, Gretchen states that, "the internet has brought us an explosion of writing by normal people." That's not a bad thing, people deserve to write and share their knowledge, it's our responsibility to fact check what we read and to know that there's a huge possibility that what we're reading isn't true.
At our age, we are all trying to get jobs and plan our futures. We are filling out college applications and writing essay too go along with them. However, along with our age we have all kinds of technology advances around us. We all have cellphones and computers, and we all text. Texting among teens has began to change how formally we write on a daily basis, because we all have started using, ¨bc, idk, nvm, ur.¨ while texting to short hand. In personal opinion, I think we should keep writing more formally taught, because despite the texting and how we short hand it is still important to be able to write formally for papers and things alike. I don´t think that the evolution is a bad thing, however, I do feel it is going to start effecting how easy it is for teens to get jobs based on their writing skills. The evolution in texting should just be kept separate from our work and school.
Our written language should be more formal than spoken language. Written language should be more formal because it may be harder to understand slang and certain dialects on paper. Many professionals that are required to write/type on a daily basis would surely agree that writing in itself is on of the most formal forms of communication, therefore it would require more formality than any other form of communication. The Constitution is a very good proof of evidence of formal communication. The Constitutions texts are extremely formal so that the intent and purpose of each amendment can be easily understood by anyone. This shows that in order to get your point across clearly and with meaning, you must write with a certain level of formality.
I think how formal our writing should be depend on where we are writing. If we are writing a document for school or work it need to have a very formal language. On the other hand if you are tweet about your feelings I don't see the need to write in a completely formal language. Of course it is always helpful to just naturally write in a formal language because you look and seem more professional, you seem more educated, and you seem like you care about what you are talking about more because you would have to think about what you are saying more.
Evolution in our writing is good in some part but bad in others. Informal is fine when it comes to needing to send a quick text to someone. Although when it comes to making an argument or writing a paper formal is needed. The one thing wrong with informal is the lack of grammer, which is important when it comes to writing. If someone constantly writes in infromal, then they'll most likely make mistakes when they have to write formal. Basically saying that writing informal is fine but doing it all the time is bad as you kinda become blind to the mistakes. The mind will just causally do it without a second though if it's what it normally does. So while yes evolution of writing is okay but practicing the old way is important and should be kept.
Our language should stay formal. Slang words sometimes don't make sense to everyone. On top of that growing up, we don't get taught slang by our teachers. We need punctuation, ending sentence marks, and smarter words. Why downgrade when it's supposed to be an evolution? We as humans continue to grow smarter every single day. Formal language is a component to that result. "ayye bruh wyo later on??" I wouldn't want to see my future son texting with such idiocy.
Written language should remain formal enough for everyone to understand what is being said. The evolution of writing have become a foreign language to some. Language that teenagers and younger people are using now is mostly abbreviations that only other young people understand. Using these abbreviations such as "nvm", "idk", and "wyd" are some of the barriers between language that everyone understands and language that only younger people understand.
Our written language should remain changing how formal it is. Our language in the way we write and speak has dramastically changed over the years. Our writing used to be super formal with longer, harder to understand words. And now our writing is more streamlined with abbreviations to write quicker and get our point across in less words. Our writing evolution is ok and should be accepted. Overtime, the world is constantly changing and the way people think and write is changing. According to "Because Internet," "The internet and mobile devices have brought us an explosion of writing by normal people." Writing is everywhere now and used by everyone which is why evolution is ok. Since people and times are always changing, people can adapt to the evolution of writing, because everyone understands the everchanging "formal" writing.
Our written language should remain formal and a little of evolution is good. It shows how we can change and expand our stiles further then the ones before us. Keep our written language formal should be important to. If we change the way we communicate over emails or letters then other people after us my not entirely understand what our history books have to say. Also how we write defines us as a people, if we start writing in a entirely different way then others will see us differently.
Our writing should evolve but not become lazy. People tend to sacrifice basic grammar for the sake of saving a few seconds. Writing in a slightly more formal manner provides a more put-together impression and is easier to read. That being said, informal writing definitely has a place in society. people shouldn't always write everything like it's a college essay, but shortening three letter words to one letter really has no benefit. Writing should evolve and change just like every other type of communication but not to the point where people write the bare minimum.
I think that it should remain formal. Evolution is okay but when it comes to writing there is not very much you can change. People not being formal is just lazy and it shows. for example nvm means never mind, that just looks sloppy and and like you don't know how to spell. In my opinion writing is writing and it should not change. With texting people don't know how to write a correct and punctual sentence. Evolution is perfectly fine but there is getting to a point where it is just stupid. People are getting lazy, they don't want take the extra or less seconds to spell words out all the way. When ever I am text i almost always have periods and I don't use slang and stuff like that most of the time. Writing should not change.
The evolution of the human language is okay, but at some point it could go to far. If it gets to the point where the older generation can't understand it, then it should stop. As of now nothing has gotten that extreme and the only thing thing we shorten is 'I don't care' to 'idc'. Our teachers of the world tend to try and use the new dialect in the teaching to attract the students and there are times it works. Thinking about how teenagers have basically the human language in their hands is astounding. They can create their own new words that can effect the human language.
It should remain how it is. It's simple and easy for people to read and write it. If we advance it some people might not be able to read or understand what is said. It's easier for everybody to use on their day to day lives. As long as people can understand it there's no point in changing it. An old saying "don't fix it if it ain't broken.". The older people might not be able to understand it.
Our formal writing online should be mostly dependent on who is being written to. People talk to each other differently based on their relationship with a person. You wouldn't talk to your best friend the same way you talk to your boss or teacher. The way we type is no different. People talk in slang to friends. It sounds more uneducated. You wouldn't talk to your boss that way and you shouldn't text to them that way either. Slang when we are talking is like the abbreviations we use when typing or texting. Using shortened words like "bc" and "k" or not capitalizing words are great examples of this. Texting like this makes it seem as the writer doesn't care enough to type it out completely. Using this more casual way of texting and writing between friends is great because everyone uses their own type of writing and it seems more personal.
Our written language should remain strong in the world, but the formal language is dying off as everyone keeps getting phones and texting. This is because when we are typing on our phones we don't really care what the people think on the other end of the phone. The bad part about this is that when we do all the abbreviations such as "wdym" or "brb" it just throws the formal or written language away.
The evolution of our writing throughout the years is perfectly fine in my opinion, but times where writing should be formal should still stand, such as in professionally published books, articles, et cetera. While the abbreviations and slang terms we've developed are very helpful and entertaining at times, not everyone has knowledge of these words and phrases so if it were to be used in something that everyone has access to, the knowledge that piece is trying to convey may be lost on a large portion of people. For example, when I was younger and read books in the vein of Diary of a Wimpy Kid and Captain Underpants, there were a few times where my mother picked up those books out of boredom and found abbreviations and colloquialisms of which she didn't know the meaning. There were some of them that even I didn't know.
The evolution of language is a good thing. Our written language should change along with our generations. Our language should evolve with us. Most teens write informally now with our text,chats,and post, so why not evolve our language and transfer the informal language into the classroom? The article "Because Internet: Understanding the New Rules of Language" says "It's not that edited, formal writing has disappeared online, its that it's now surrounded by a vast sea of unedited, unfiltered words that once might have only been spoken". This shows that most of the world is evolving and moving to the informal writing in their everyday lives. I believe that our language should should change to informal due to the amount of people that have evolved their language.
Our written language should not be as formal as expected. When we aren't pushed all the time to make sure our writing is formal, our opinion on the matter. This makes the evolution of our language okay. When less time is spent being formal, it creates more time to do other things.
The evolution of the formality of our written language should be considered a good thing. As time goes on, people change and so do their interests and attention span. Many people in society today just prefer a quick and to the point article. Although some people enjoy the old fashioned way of formal writing, the majority of our generation does not. For the most part, this is contributed from social media. However, there are other modern influences that do not use formal writing because they try and appeal to us. Formal writing is not a way of life as it once was and that's a good thing for the average person in society.
Our language should remain formal to ensure that our language can be interpreted between all the generations. But that's not saying that we should not allow evolution and adaptation. Over time people and technology change, and to be able to keep up with the changing needs, our language should too. Without language evolution majority of the people today wouldn't be able to interpret even simple texts or be able to communicate efficiently.
Our writing should be in a formal format. It makes individuals look more intelligent. More colleges and high end people look for a person that can speak and write correctly. The reason that the evolution of writing has changed so much is because people have started to get lazy. No one wants to spell out large words anymore or take the time to write a full sentence. In today's world everyone is using some sort of slang. Words like "I don't know" have now become "idk" according to the article Because Internet .The evolution has made things easier for people but it also doesn't show a persons true knowledge of literature. If someone misspells a word over text, that person typically is not the one changing it, they normally go right to auto correct or find a more simple word to use.
Our written language should remain pretty formal in my opinion because if we would change our language formally we would not all understand each other. For example my parents wouldn't be able to understand slang terms that would be taught at our schools. They would have to learn all these new words and sayings while having to go to work as well. Also kids would have a harder time learning to spell bigger words because they would be used to putting just a letter or two for words or phrases. Plus I think if we were to shorten our words, I think we would just try to re-shorten the already shortened word.
I believe our written formal language should remain the same. If one compares formal writing from 1776 to now, 2019, it's clearly easier to read and write. I know, personally, that I've had to learn about formal writings from the past, and the task was to fully understand what the writer is trying to say. Most of the time, at least for me, I couldn't even finish reading because I didn't now what it meant. I'm sure if I grew up in that era I'd understand it better, but Iive in 2019. I enjoy how our formal writing has evolved. When I read a Formula 1 or NASCAR article, it brings intelligent and sophisticated writing, that I can understand, into something that I'm passionate about. No one wants to read an article about Max Verstappen beating his own track record is a 1700's dialect.
I believe that our written language does need to be formal depending on the what we are writing. I think that if you are writing a paper then you need to use correct language, but if you are texting I think it is acceptable to use informal writing. To me a text is supposed to be short and straight to the point, you do not need correct grammar or extra words. A paper is supposed to be descriptive, you need to make sure things are correct and your thoughts are well presented. Our language is evolving, but to me a paper is formal and text is not. I think that our language will evolve more and accept new things into it, but I believe language will always make papers formal and text none formal.
The way that people write is changing as their language evolves. This generation is starting to shorten words and use language people would use if they were texting a friend. I believe that when writing a letter, essay, or email, the writer should have some form of professionalism in their writing. Although, the language that is used to write will not be the same as generations before us and that is not necessarily a bad thing. Individuals tend to use a lot of texting language and shorten words. For example, "lol, nvm, gtg, wyd". That type of language should not be used when writing something formal. You also shouldn't use shortened words such as "b/c or w/out". If I read a paper like that I would think that the writer is uneducated and immature. In conclusion, as language evolves, writing should remain in a formal manner.
There should be some formality when you write a paper. When you are writing a paper, some formality is needed so the person that is reading can understand it, for example, if you are writing a birthday or thank you card to someone, you need to put who it is going to on the top and you need to put who is sending it on the bottom. If you don't put some formality in what you are writing, the person who is trying to read what you are writing will get confused and stop reading because they won't know what you are saying. However, you shouldn't put too much formality in the paper so that the reader thinks that you are from the 18th century and you say thee, instead of them. Though, you might want to get the paper done quickly, or maybe the person you are sending the letter too is very old and they read very formally, those could be valid reasons, but you only need a little bit of formality so they can understand the letter.
