WARNING: extreme homeschooler rant with really no purpose below:
As in every generation, teenagers basically have an entire vocabulary to themselves; a vocabulary complied of phrases we use a lot. But why is it that about half of these have incorrect grammar? We repeat these phrases over and over again, getting them ingrained in our minds. I wonder how many of us even think about what we are saying. The intelligence of the English language (at least in America) is declining by the generation. Why? I've always thought it was perfectly natural, but why is that? Does the birth of new inventions that make life more convenient really call for the simplification of our language? What reasons do we have for making English easier and easier to speak? Shouldn't we be just as intelligent as our ancestors? Maybe it's the school systems, maybe it's individual laziness, I don't know. But I'm just saying that our language is slowly crumbling away. What will it be like in 100 years?
Just to clarify, I'm just as guilty as the people I'm criticizing. I use these "teenager phrases" just as much as the average kid. This is post is probably loaded with grammatical errors too. I don't know and I'm too lazy to check.
All I'm saying is, please think about how you express yourself. Our "phrases" are funny when they're said at the right time. It's all a part of being a teenager. But please, please realize when you're not using correct grammar. I really don't know how to end this but yay for nerdy rants.
