How the Internet is Changing Language

Use of digital devices and the many opportunities for communication occasioned by the
internet have required language to jump through many different hoops. Now that people are
communicating in written form as never before, truncated turns of phrase and space- or
keystroke-efficient emoticons and acronyms have become mainstream.
Facebook has given a different nuance to familiar words such as status, post and tag. Its
perhaps right that Facebook should be one of the most influential sites: according to the
Huffington Post, if Facebook were a country, it would be the most populated in the world.
English continues to dominate the web; the amount of English language content far
outweighs the number of mother tongue speakers in the world.
The fact that language is humanitys greatest tool may strengthen majority languages to
the cost of minority ones, threatening the worlds linguistic diversity. Thats perhaps the
greatest change that the internet poses to language across the globe.
