    What's Happening To Our Language? ****

    Is It just me, looking at it from an older viewpoint or is our language being censored an softer replacements added?
    Examples: In place of the word"LIE"-------Misspoken
    : In place of the word"FACT"-----Talking point

    'softer' maybe cause everyone is scared of political correctness?

    The use of language is very powerful.

    I am noticing the Orwellian double-speak in the mainstream. Not to ruffle feathers, but things like the 'Patriot Act', sure it has the word patriot, but it's nearly the opposite.

    I perfer to work my word magic, in person, with eye contact.

    In George Orwell's book 1984 (fiction from the 1940s) he described a new language called "newspeak"
    It was developed under the guise of simplification, but was really used as a means of controlling the people.

    The premise being that if they removed the ability to form the words of protest, they could control people further.
    Instead of bad, there was only "ungood" Or "doubleungood" or "doubleplusungood"

    he also accurately predicted our surveillance society and total, all powerful big government control.

    It's just us oldies watching the world continuing to further manifest within the various cultural and social overlappings of a rapidly progressing world environment. Then again, I can still take you into neighborhoods where "liar" would be a very mild compliment.
    "Treasure is wherever it can be found."

    oh I was thinking an event from 1984 LOL

    I see it. it is to nullify masses emotions. smart, but yet every minute of every news cast I ever watch is horrible news. So while the word 'ungood' is calmer, should the pictures and whole story equal those words? way off in my opinion. They'' need censor the news more LOL a picture speaks a thousand words, to the seer of that pic. can't be censored.

    Chick, Oh, but they do sensor the pictures. I stayed up late to watch that Branch Davian Raid in TX. I saw the tank poke the "gun barrel" thru the kitchen wall. Smoke started coming out of the building. The tank pulled back out and flaming napon dripping from its barrel. The next morning I watched the reruns of the event. The flaming part was photoshopped out. There was also a photographer that was caught photoshopping a war picture in a mag for a more dramatic effect. It's easy to change pictures, I do it all the time. As an example, the picture below is a composit of a goose picture and a picture of Gracie a bulldog I had. Frank

    They should make that mandatory for police as an example of how NOT to act.

    As an "older" person, I have noticed a "shift" in semantics, meanings,
    new words and phrases of language, and some even becoming extinct.
    Mostly I see confusion of what people mean when they say "what they say."

    Sometimes, inflection, tone and cadence provide the only clues to understanding and communicating with others...

    For example, an early shift was when countries no longer "spied;" those countries now "conduct surveilence."

    It is no longer acceptable to call a certain viral skin condition a "wart." They will now be called "skin biscuits."

    "Toilet paper" has fallen by the wayside; from now on until further notice it shall be called, "Moon Floss."

    I find it easier to adapt and find humor than to stress over language, which is a living, breathing entity;
    changing, morphing and allowing for constant new interpretations.

    Great thread!

    Best
    Wishes,
    Scott

    PS. I'll subscribe to this thread in hopes of a "gay" time!
