Communication Becoming More Shallow
Posted by languageandgrammar on September 19, 2011
You know, sometimes I feel especially curmudgeonly (hey kids, get out of the yard!) when I complain about the way people communicate these days, with a short attention span, sloppy grammar, and punctuation influenced by typing on a mobile device the size of postage stamp. It’s all very impersonal and ineffective.
That’s why it makes me feel better when I see a college student who feels that real communication is becoming more shallow, especially when she does such a nice job of saying so.
Her name is Vera Greene, and she writes for Penn State’s Daily Collegian.
