STEPHEN FRY ON THE JOYS OF LANGUAGE
I recently stumbled across a wonderful account of language from Stephen Fry and it got me thinking. It's about time we all just relaxed about language a little, be it foreign or our own. Language isn't about perfection. It's about passion, expression and culture.
Let's imagine a person, visiting your country for the first time, approaches you in the street and says, "Please the supermarket where is?" Yes, the words are in the wrong order, but does that matter as long you understand it? Who in their right mind wouldn't point to the nearest shop?! We get very protective over using our language ‘properly', but in the grand scheme of things, why do we let it bother us?
Similarly, we turn our nose up at people for using phrases such as ‘lol' and ‘chillax', but I certainly can't remember anybody saying that the Oxford English Dictionary is full and no new words are allowed. As Stephen Fry says, we often forget that Shakespeare, whose work is pivotal to our language today, made words up. The world didn't start with an already constructed dictionary, so why stop tomorrow's people from expressing just how totes amazeballs their day was?
