2. You are probably correct.
This does not, however, render it invalid in the context of colloquial and/or vernacular speech.

Therefore, not even close to being burned. Did I strike a nerve with your style of teenspeak?

It's a construct based on Orwell's newspeak. It's creativity versus illiteracy. Creativity wins, lazy illiteracy loses.

24. "Addie" Is Not A Word. "Addy" Is Not A Word. "W00t" Is Not A Word.
Edited on Tue Jul-20-04 05:48 AM by arwalden
"3" is not a valid substitute for an "E".
"0" is not an "O"
"1" is not an "l"
"5" is not an "S"
"4" is not an "A"
"U" is not "you"
"2" is not "to" or "too"
"4" is not "for"
"@" is not "at" (except in pricing and email addresses)
"M" is not "am"
"R" is not "are"

Good grief... just type it out folks. How much harder can it be to just type the word "am" instead of "M". Two keypresses for "am"... and two keypresses for "M". --- Just grow up and type like adults. I easily forgive typos and common spelling errors... but INTENTIONALLY misspelling words is just stupid.

Thanks for starting this thread Zomby.

-- Allen

P.S. I normally put people on ignore for using the word "prolly"... except in the cases of rants like this. (A most excellent post.)

32. Strong Bad's Rhythm 'n' Grammar CD
Any Homestar fans remember the Strong Bad Rhythm 'n' Grammar CD? It was an easter egg after the e-mail where he thows together a newscast.

>>And I don't care how they spell things on the Internet
>>When you E-mail me, you spell the whole word out
>>And I don't care that your cell phone has a camera in it...

there was also

>>Girl, don't forget to spellcheck
>>Or I'll come to your house and throw a brick through your dad's windshield
>>Windshield!

and

>>Y-O-U-R
>>Y-O-U-Apostrophe-R-E
>>They're as different as night and day
>>Don't you think that night and day are different?
>>What's wrong with you?

:D

33. Two things are certain about language...
1. It is always changing.
2. Somebody is always griping about the most recent changes.

To Shakespeare, our best English is horrible.
To Chaucer, Shakespeare's best English is dreadful.
To your Grandparents your best English is marginal at best.
To you, your grand children's English boarders on sacrilegious.

"Proly" is currently acceptable to some members of one generation and not currently acceptable to most members of another generation. In time, when the old farts die off, it may become generally acceptable.

In the meantime, it meets the basic criteria for "word", regardless of what judgmental pronouncements one may make about it.

Remember when "Internet" wasn't a word? Remember when "forsooth" was?

43. Sure it is.
Just because it's not in the dictionary (yet) doesn't mean it's not a word.

Wouldn't "semi-literate cretins" (or pseudo-intellectuals, for that matter) have a problem with an evolving and ever-changing english language?

47. Neither is : "Baaaaaaaack". As in: "I'm Baaaaaaaack"
That never ceases to annoy me. There's a word, "back" that's in usage. But there is no word "baaaaaaaaaaack". Please don't use it. Thank you.
