    Default BA Paper in Business English

    Hey there,
    I am studying English (Business specialization), and this year I am going to write my BA paper. My problem is that I have no single idea for the subject, as I was planning to write it about literature, but because of my specialization- it's impossible.

    Does anybody has any idea for the topic that is connected with Business language?
    Thanks in advance.

    How about whether the pervasive use of "text lingo" on the part of people under 30 will ever become acceptable business English - or whether businesses need to adapt their use of language to appeal to younger consumers - or even whether this has already happened.

    Business English amounts to workplace-simulating English teaching.
    Would you need more information?

    I was thinking to touch the subject from other side- not linguistic.
    My promoter is a big fan of Second Life, and suggested me to write about making money in virtual world on the example of SL (suggested me to open a business there or so), or sth like that. But its not my piece of bread, I'm not interested in games at all :/ Still have no idea...

    SL has probably had its day anyway.
