Imagine a world where only the wealthy have access to knowledge. If anyone has an opinion about something, they have to keep it to themselves or spread information by mouth. There is no way to reach public knowledge, and everyone has to figure things out themselves. This is a world without writing and books, and this is how humans used to live until the fifteenth century. One invention changed this, and this is the printing press. I believe that the printing press is the most helpful invention to humans so far, and it has influenced our world in many ways.
The printing press, created by Johann Gutenberg in 1450 altered the course of history and spread of ideas and culture. Politically, the printing press allowed laws to travel and be distributed faster, and government ideas and cultural to spread to other areas. Intellectually, it allowed the sharing of ideas and opinions about the same topic between many different people, and the creation of secular books that influenced many intellectuals. Religiously, the printing press allowed the spread of different religious ideas and vernaculars Bible to everyone. Thus, the development of the printing press altered the political, intellectual, and religious ideas in Europe.
Over the year’s technology has evolved drastically. Technology that involves social media play a huge role in the way people interacts with one another especially when it comes to grammar. Most people communicate using their computers, mobile device or tablets. As technology is changing so has the language. Social media is one of the main forms of communicating with people. Sites such as Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, Youtube are major social media outlets that are used daily to communicate with individuals near or far. It has formed language using mainly acronyms and emojis (pictures). Emojis has become popular in the past few
As time goes on, everything that we do in life modernises alongside us. Many people hold the opinion that ‘old fashioned’ methods of language use were more caring and creative, and that modern technology allows us to simply be ‘lazy’. However by looking at examples of texting, and/or web-based interaction, I will be able to show that modern language use can too be very creative.
Johannes Gutenberg’s printing press changed how the world communicated. Before the printing press was invented, people around the world had to handwrite every single word into a book; this took a very long time and was also expensive. Also, literature
Everyday people read newspapers and books, but where did printing begin? The movable type printing press by Johannes Gutenberg made this all possible. Johannes first conceived of this idea of the printing press in the 15th century in order to speed up the slow process of producing books (Bantwal). The movable type printing press, the first real technology of its kind, helped to solve problems, but in turn also caused problems. This technology did influence many areas of life in its lifespan. This includes challenging the church and poisoning people with the increased toxins from mass products of materials. Depending on one’s point of view, this invention could be the best or worst thing to happen during the 15th century. Regardless of
In 1452, the German Johannes Gutenberg invented the printing press that changed hIstory. Before the printing press, books were hand copied. It was very expensive, time-consuming and someone could easily make an error. The printing press let books be produced easily, fast, and cheap. Some people thought that if Gutemberg wan’t there, then the Renaissance would not have had the same influence for today.the first few books tha he printed were of the bible. The Bible was later changed through time, and he used his version on documents used in the Rhine area of Germany in the 14th to 15th centuries.
The printing press effectsly affected European progress. Its prompt impact was that it spread data rapidly and precisely. This made a more extensive educated perusing open. Be that as it may, its significance lay not simply by they way it spread data and feelings, yet in addition in what sorts of data and assessments it was spreading. There were two fundamental bearings printing took, both of which were presumably absolutely unexpected by its makers.
Language and communication between different cultures is complex; the future holds many technological promises that will make these complexities easier to bear. This dialect decline can be credited to the industrialization of communication which exploits the human interest of entertainment, which in turn, expands and simplifies human communication. Billions of people of all walks of life have assimilated to the language of modern technology and billions more are left in the dusk. “Media exposure can spread new vocabulary and give people in different regions an understanding of the “standard American.” (PBS) The internet has allowed people to communicate farther than ever before, share knowledge at light speed pace. We feel that we do not have time to type “hey that was very funny” instead we type “LOL” we have simplified terms in speech and have become accustomed to the internet world: speed equals success. Society’s entrepreneurs and astute minds are constantly
ONG in chapter five “ Print, Space and Closure”talks about printing press and its effects .Through the chapter I found some interesting points connected to literacy. First,the idea of persons in a primary oral culture can entertain some sense of proprietary rights to a poem but with writing resentment at plagiarism begins to develop . We struggle in a copy right world and with removing words from the sound world , print encouraged us to think about mental held possessions as we express ourselves in narrative discourse."Writing is not necessarily the mirror-image and destroyer of orality, but reacts or interacts with oral communication in a variety of ways. Sometimes the line between written and oral even in a single activity cannot actually be drawn very clearly, as in the characteristic Athenian contract which involved witnesses and an often rather slight written document, or the relation between the performance of a play and the written and published text.” (Rosalind Thomas, Literacy and Orality in Ancient Greece. Cambridge Univ. Press, 1992). As a future literacy specialist , I gained new understanding about the line between oral and written and the way writing interacts with oral.
