Who is this Isabelle Kerr lady to be putting down my generation?
I think my generation is more like Shakespeare than she realizes. In-fact I would say that we are all mini Shakespeares in the making. We have created our own unique language that is strictly for us. Who else would understand the sentence; link me at s-way mans gotta bounce out real quick. The older generation would be totally confused however the younger readers would know exactly what I want to do and why. I want them to meet me at the south junction quickly as I need to leave soon. Now are you really going to tell me that’s not creative. Kerr actually says “Shakespeare will be turning in his grave.” I would have to say that I agree. Shakespeare would be turning in his grave but not at us playing with and evolving the English language. As he did this himself all the time without him we would not have words like ‘addiction’ and ‘assassination’, and you can bet that she has used these words before. ‘haven’t you Isabelle?‘
Kerr also stated that words like “selfie” “unlike” and “digital detox” were “pitiful emblems of the current young generation’s contribution to language.” I strongly disagree as I think it is inspiring how young people are smart enough to create a new language. It should be respected not undermined. She goes on to say “I am embarrassed and ashamed” and so she should be. She hasn’t taken the time to learn this new amazing language. Just because she feels left out, does not mean that the language is rubbish. I’m sure she doesn’t understand Mandarin so is she saying that 14.4% of the world should be ashamed. When people first traveled the world loads of new languages were made; French, Spanish, Arabic etc. was that appalling?
Her inability to see that ‘slang’ words are an inspiration to the evolution of the English language and should be treasured and promoted, rather than criticized by people who are narrow-minded and do not understand. To label it a ‘disgrace’ to the British language is a disgrace in itself. This is why Issabelle Kerr will never have a mind of her own, and will always be a ‘sheep’ who is afraid to break boundaries and be creative. It is clear that Issabelle Kerr has a biased opinion, and has never been exposed to the culture where this type of language has originated. Maybe one day she will see the beauty of this evolution of the English language.
Modern language or slang as Issabelle would call it is actually highly advanced and technical. If you understand how it has been formed an works you can find out where someone lives and the relationship two people or a group of people have with each other. For example in South London a young person would say ‘beef’ to replace the word ‘fight’ and in North London they would use the word ‘Beef’ to reference to a good looking male.
