Teenagers are ruining the English language. This statement is often used by the prescriptivists, those who supports the rules that defines how english is supposed to be spoken according to some authority, however, language is endlessly changing. The English we all know today has changed from the Old english, with some rules disappearing, like splitting the infinitives that doesn't exist anymore, and English is still changing with the new generations that speak it. For example, more often today, we can hear that the "-s" coming at the end of the verb when it's conjugating at the simple present for the third person, is sometimes disappearing in some songs. Consequently, it is impossible to stop the language to change, however, it is not a bad

The Sensis Social Media Report 2017 was commissioned like most research, to increase knowledge and improve understanding of the world (Weerakkody, 2015, p.3).

Why is English language in this stage of globalization important? How will it affect today’s world?
One of the fundamental ideas of linguistics is that all languages undergo some sort of change. It might be surprising at first to know that language changes, it was especially to me because I’ve never looked at language in that particular perspective. Although all language changes, they change at particular rates, whether it takes a thousand years or a couple hundred, and in different ways, whether it is grammatically or phonologically. However, it’s important to note that language change is definitely not a bad thing. It usually seems like the older generation grumbles about the younger generation’s poor English, but there is indeed nothing bad about any form of language. It is something that happens due to a variety of factors, but a common question from a person who has no background in linguistics is “Why can’t they just speak with correct English?” However, after learning and researching more about linguistics, that statement is extremely absurd. There isn’t a correct English. The English that people think is correct is the dialect with the most power, which is Standard English. There is nothing that is sloppy or lazy about a way that a person speaks because language will never stop changing. English is always a work in progress!
English as a Global Language English is fast becoming the dominant means by which the world is able to communicate. It is being referred to as the global language as it is seen as a common means for interaction between different countries. This new phenomena can be seen in a positive light because the use of English as a common language brings efficiency and greater understanding. Growth and development are not tolerant of differences and English becomes a means for international expansion. Nonetheless this also brings with it a development which “gobbles up cultures and traditions”.
