Has the Internet Permanently Changed How We Speak?

"We'll come back to wild wild tech a show about the strange frankenstein's monster of technology and culture shambling through our lives. I'm josh rivera. And i'm doing erika weber. I am the frankenstein and joshua is the monster. Let me paint you a picture jordan. It's the early nineteen eighty s. we're in calgary alberta. It's cold because this is calgary and a man named wayne pearson. Is typing three letters online for the first time l. I think you're familiar with this. Wouldn't rate yes. It clearly means lots of love joshua. It's like it's laugh out loud right. Yeah i mean this one's everywhere right with a few exceptions like you just said like everyone gets it. It's an example of what we might call like. Internet speak which can be a phrase acronym or a word that was either born or popularized on the internet. Do you have any favorites. A oh laughing my ass off or ass for you over there what else. I never really liked raffle because it sounded too fluffy. Yeah funny funny thing about raffle ruffles. Actually fallen out of popularity. No one really use it anymore. Probably because they feel the same way you do so your your taste maker good. Everyone should listen to me more. I have a friend who just types wrecked r. e. t. all caps when someone gets there s handed to them but like only in a very minor inconsequential way. It feels a little stupid talking about this stuff right. But i also think it's fun i mean we're both riders and language is kind of easy to take for granted. It just sort of like works and you don't really appreciate for the thousands of miracles that it takes to make it work so talking to a link and we've got to here today just reminds you of how much magic there is and how we speak to one another. There are very obvious differences in the way we speak and like sometimes it's fun. Pack that but before we go any further we should because this is an english language podcast or naturally going to discuss english and because language is also culture. It's worth noting. A big part of how. The internet influence language comes from cultures borrowing from one another sometimes in ways that are not particularly great or well-considered. We're mostly focusing on the tech angle. Here as the cultural one is enough to fuel an entire podcast. Yeah much as. I would like to pitch that podcast. Personally you'd be better off going to listen to the allusion est within a by helen saltzman. She talks about this kind of thing. All the time and you know talks about the conflict between loving the english language and also knowing that it has committed atrocities so today. I'm going to introduce you to two of my favorite interviews so far. The first is someone who has around fifty years of experience in linguistics and comes from your side of the jordan. Well i'm david crystal academically. I'm honorary professor of linguistics at the university of banja. Here in north wales. Also really. I spend most of my time at home especially lockdown writing books about language in linguistics and the english language gender close aspects of the internet to. He's here to give us an understanding of how the internet has impacted our language and the ways. It has actually happened before but first he starts with something. That's a little bit surprising. For all the words we don't know and rapidly growing lexicon. The internet's impact on the english. Language is actually quite small. Not because there isn't a lot of change but because the english language is so vast. Let's just stay with english for the moment over the past twenty years. I'm sure the internet has added several thousand new words and phrases to the english language. But heck the english language has over a million words each many more than that nobody knows. How many so an extra few thousand isn't a big deal. As far as vocabulary is concerned and then grandma. Oh well as far as i can tell the grammatical constructions. We will using back in one thousand nine hundred ninety just before the win. Came in exactly the same as the grammatical constructions. You and i are using right now. According to professor crystal this has had a side effect. I'm sure you've seen before. Those who treat changes in the language as a sign of cultural decay. So i went to see a show by susie. Dent she does dictionary kona on a countdown. I don't know if any of this is meaningful to you countdown. british television program with word challenges and number challenges and she does the dictionary corner anyway. She did this show about language and she talked about how people are often very concerned about it. Changing her thing was the word. Mischievous people often pronounces mischievous because they think it rhymes with devious. But it's actually mischievous more people probably say mischievous that. It will probably just change the word that kind of thing. Yeah and this is one of the things that professor crystal talked about length. The languages nature change. It's not inherently good or bad. it's just change.

Some Dinosaurs Probably Nested in Arctic

"Those vicious predatory dinosaurs that tended to be fairly small as six to nine ten feet. Long snout to tail there. Certainly in the Jurassic. Park movies the things that terrorize people Anthony Fiorello a paleontologist at southern Methodist University in Dallas Texas for more than two decades. Now, Fiorello has been digging a dinosaur fossils, hundreds of miles north of the Arctic Circle in Alaska. So one of the fundamental questions about dinosaurs in Alaska. In the ancient Arctic is, did they live there all year round did they migrate? How did they get their a recent discovery sheds light on those questions this fossil that's the subject study is a baby dinosaur, the baby predatory dinosaur, and it is a baby. It's not just juvenile and given the size estimate of this thing. This probably was not far from where the nesting ground was. So this is the first physical proof. Alley some dinosaurs nested in the ancient Arctic some of the first Arctic dinosaur remains ever found were discovered back in the nineteen sixties in Svalbard, an archipelago north of mainland Norway. Since then researchers have theorized, the dinosaurs must have migrated to avoid deeply cold winters but Fiorello says this new discovery disproves that idea for you know the classic stereotype for dinosaurs is that had been. that they were living in sub tropical environments oftentimes, somewhat swampy if you look at various artwork over generations, that was quite often how these dinosaurs were reconstructed. In reality the climate north of Alaska's Brooks range seventy million years ago was similar to what we might see today in Portland, Oregon or Calgary Alberta. Certainly a place where. Things were cooler. Or who were capable of being cool at times but certainly warmer than the the Arctic today, the fossil find is a piece of jawbone with a tooth from Dromaeosaur Fiorello and colleagues unearthed it along the banks of the call. They'll river not too far from the Arctic Ocean. The bone is the first non dental evidence of that species in the far north the researchers report their discovery in the journal plus one. Of course questions remain. How did they do what they did because even with the warmer temperatures at the latitude, the thieves dinosaurs were living, which is at least seventy degrees north if not even farther nor. Do they endure long periods of light and dark, and that's where the research will go next for now Fiorello says the new discovery proves that these giant reptiles were well adapted to the highly seasonal environments of the late Cretaceous that we still experience today in the Arctic.

I just wish you all look in the world. And I appreciate you listened to the show. And man if you need to get out of piece of paper. You know, make a goal or two or just put something on the side of your your bedside there to tell you to get you out of bed and get to work, then do that. But again, I don't know the particulars of your situation. But I certainly wish you the best. And obviously, you know, you're you're saying you too stubborn quit trying. So just just keep at it brother and do the best you can now here's a question. We talked about turtles couple of weeks back about how long they been here. I think it was around two hundred and fifty million years, and I was like having a flying hill can someone know how long turtles a bit here. And so I get an Email from Candice over in Seattle. And she says, hey, Steve, Charles and all other animals are dated thanks to many kinds of absolute dating techniques one of which being radiocarbon dating this measures the amount of carbon fourteen. Left in the fossil as an animal or human lives. It accumulates carbon fourteen when an animal dies it begins losing carbon fourteen as it decomposes carbon fourteen decays, according to the half laugh rate of decomposition and using the amount of carbon fourteen left in the fossil. When it is found a fossil is aged. That's how scientists found out. How old turtles are swig a water for the archaeologists kid is out. Bridget. You send me an Email and give me the four one ward about carbon fourteen, but I busted out my calculator, and I'll come up, I think the science the scientists had turtles ran for about two hundred and fifty million years. I had it at two hundred and forty seven million point five myself on my calculations once I found out about the carbon fourteen which you refer. To in your Email. So anyway, that's how they know. How oldies motherfucking turtles are anything? It dies. It's the carbon fourteen how fucking stupid could I been to realize it's the carbon fourteen shit. What drop out archaeology class? Hey, candace. Appreciate the Email. That's damn good answer. And it's a correct answer. Thanks for helping her brother out and got Dan turtles have been here in a long time. And I guess continue to be here for a long time in the future. Here we go. Hey, steve. I currently live in Atlanta and have lived here for nine years from Chicago. What was it land like for you when you lived here, and what was travel schedule like and how was it working to center stage? Did you guys get to party a lot in Atlanta hours here how crazy land it used to be back in a day? It's coming from Michael over in Atlanta GE, of course. Well, Michael centerstage was a cool little building, you know, to go out and do some TV tapings. Kaunda reminds me of that inex- t setup they got over down in Orlando. And obviously, the facilities a lot nicer nor Orlando, but man, sometimes you'd have a crowd full you. Anything anybody would show up, and then they add some plants out there in a crowd to try to go see the look of the place, but it was a great little wrestling building..

If you've called him with your favorite, I want you to call in with the wrestler who does not get his do. This may not be your favorite wrestler. There's just a rattler who in your opinion doesn't get talked about enough because of his great influence on the sport about that chat. Nakanishi, but that little exemption.

"Percent changing, your number of wives. That's that's a bigger difference than two degrees of latitude. When you pray. I think I might have moved down to Arizona city or whatever down there in the in the unexplored south kept out of the colonies in Mexico. John Romney kept up to that that little mountain enclave there in British Columbia Cowdery. I think it's south. Calgary alberta. Yeah. Just say like, I'm gonna keep at least a few of the wives. You could've been a proto Romney might get rid of. It'd be like John Romney be like, no, it's John Rahman. No, the Romany or different people love their their dancing tambourines. This is actually a live question in. I mean, not to get too far into the weeds here. But for members of the latter day Saint religious tradition. It's a big deal lately. The currently the churches like it was always a mistake to accept Mormons the word Mormons like that's that's the oppressors name read about this. And for a while the idea, the the Utah leadership idea was let's we're going to reclaim Mormon the same way. You can reclaim queer or whatever. And just you know, it's kind of the ship has already sailed. It's in the title of hit Broadway plays. Let's just make sure they know Mormons are nice friendly neighbors, and the new guy is like a hardliner like, no, you should not accommodate the word Mormon, but you were saying that this happens every every few decades, or so where more the word Mormon comes in and out of fashion, or there's a fought against it does happen and typically it's kinda couched in this kind of language like like we. Were saying when the sacred mosque changes, the new guy on the new sheriff will be respectful of his predecessors and say, you know, this was very appropriate twenty years ago. The the great thing about having a modern direct line to God is that God can adjust for the area. And now in two thousand eighteen we need to shift focus of did he rephrase of that? Right. And in this case, the guy clearly did not nod to that kind of rhetoric and. Russell m Nelson. The current president of the church of Jesus Christ latter-day saints, right? Not the Mormon church. He would he would freak out. If you said, the more he actually says, no this is every time this has been done. It's offense Christ. And it's victory for Satan. So what if you remember his predecessors doing this? You're like, wow. You just through like every other like bearded Mormon profits going back to eighteen hundred us through under the under the bus under the covered wagon. So what is the new artful phrase? That's the problem. There's adjective, oh, think about every religion has a nice, adjective, Catholic Methodist Buddhist, right for Islam has Muslim you know, because you have to have one or else. No, one can read books and talk. So there's no adjective, so it's very easy instead of Mormon church to say it's longer, but you can say the churches Christ latter-day since you can use the institution. How do you describe a person? Exactly, you could say a latter day Saint a latter day Saint, but no one's gonna do that quite a bit. It longer. So but anyone who uses the word Mormon than is like an outsider. But are you going to refer internally to one another as fellow Saint what it's very tricky because certain elements that are not related to the institutional church like Mormon culture or the Mormon Tabernacle choir which they renamed by the way, they dropped the word Mormon letter day Saint it's just that Habur nickel choir the tabernacle choir at temple square. That sounds that sounds like a like an extended stay hotel come to the shops at river Red River woods, or or you know, it's like when they rename stadium for the coach or the new corporate sponsor, but they don't wanna lose the old name. So now, it's right Alaska Airlines court at heck Edmonson arena, or whatever it is. Right. It's it's fourth avenue at Hernandez boulevard. So yeah, you know, the degree to which you decide God is retroactive is kind of a tricky affair, right?.

"We're back here the Scotiabank settled over Calgary Alberta. John Wiedeman along with Troy Murray for Blackhawks hockey final score tonight. The flames beat the hawks five to three the hawks had the lead in this game going into the third period. Three two two over the flames and just could not hold onto the lead. Troy mentioned in a number of times. How the flames were engaging. They were pushing the pace the hawks were on their heels. And finally, Sean Monahan tied the score at thirteen fifty nine then a few minutes later Michael leak on a lucky goal. Michael was a few feet all the goal line to the right of the net. And he was centering the puck and it hit Artem Anisimov. Stick and tumbled pass Crawford to make it four three that turned out to be the game winning goal from the flames. And then for good measure Michael Backman, scored into an empty hawk net. A short handed empty net goal at nineteen thousand three that's all she wrote hawks tally for shots on goal in the game. Fifteen. That's that's that's a season low. That makes me think that I don't know just makes me think that maybe during the first period, maybe during the second period, something could have been different. So that in the third period that wasn't a factor but the flames pork twentieth. Corey crawford. And they ended up winning this hockey game with three third period goals.
