I think that the English langauge is going the way of the dinosaur...
But when kids are exposed 24/7 to the media using txt speak and incorrect spellings is it any wonder taht kids dont use the langauge properly? Big Bruvver type usage by C4, am I bovvered-subtitles on a well known program. so its not a great leap to say the langauge will probably change drastically in the next 100 years but tahts the thing with language its constantly evolving.

Reading Chaucer and Shakespeare illustrates how languages keep evolving. Their function is to communicate - as long as they fullfill that criteria they're doing their job.
