Language in Social Media


So as we move toward spring – I hope! We want to see our children play more and screen time less. However, if like me you have been puzzled by the words our children are using its because language changes over time and social media like tic tok changes the meaning of words. 


Here is a great link to look at language in social media and get an understanding of why our children are using words like ‘rizz’ or ‘moots’. It isn’t something we particularly like but remember when Shakespeare wrote he introduced over 1700 words to the English language. Can you imagine the shock and horror of these new words being used by people in his day?


Today it’s the same revolving changes of talking and interacting a simple continuation of the ongoing development of language. Enjoy!! #ALR
