From GR8 to fleek: Social Media Speeds Up Language Evolution:

From GR8 to fleek: Social Media Speeds Up Language Evolution: | Learning technologies for EFL | Scoop.it

Geoff Nunberg (UC Berkeley):

It used to be that slang began among high school kids and worked its way around the school and maybe spread to kids in other generations before eventually reaching the speech of older people. By the time the older people were using it, the high school kids had moved on to something else. The whole point of slang is to keep your language separate, but now you can make a video or a Vine, a word catches on, the link is passed all around and two weeks later there are 2 billion people who are using this word, it’s astonishing.

City lilacs In crack-haunted alleys, overhangs, plots of sour earth that pass for gardens, in the space between wall and wheelie bin, where men with mobiles make urgent conversation, where bare-legged girls shiver in April winds, where a new mother stands on her doorstep and blinks at the brightness of morning, so suddenly born - in all these places the city lilacs are pushing their cones of blossom into the spring to be taken by the warm wind.
