The Slow Death of the English Language
While watching the news the other evening, I was astounded at the improper use of the English language. Sports reporters, news reporters, etc., have slipped into the abyss of grammatically incorrect use of so many different words and phrases. Here are some of the most frequently misused statements and words:
- He had went.
- When they had came over.
- Where is it at?
- Doing good
Sadly, I fear the proper use of our language is going to be a thing of the past. With the advent of texting, many young adults truly don't even know how to use much of our language properly. Being able to correctly communicate on a written level I believe, still has value.
I would love to hear your thoughts on this subject. I am personally sad in witnessing this slow death of our language. I guess I am just an old geezer! Ho hum!
