    Re: slangs are increasing

    I think it is more evident via the internet, but that there has always been slang and that is is constantly changing. I am not convinced that there is any more than there has been in the past; just that it is more widely accessible.

    If we agree, it is the internet... So what about SMS or mobile text language and emoticons?

    In the past there were other things- the telegram had its own forms too.
