The Life of Language - 6/14

Dominique Haller

On today's show, we'll be talking to world renowned language specialist David Crystal. In his latest book called A Little Book of Language, he discusses the volatility of language in all its variations - from regional slangs to new forms of language that emerge with new forms of technology. Today's show is part of our World of Language Series. You can find more information on the series here.

What changes have you noticed in your own use of language with the rise of communication technology? Are you a stickler for perfect language use? Or are you tolerant to uses of language that don't comply with the standard? Leave us your comments below!
