Emoticons and symbols aren't ruining language – they're revolutionizing it

:) In many casual discussions of language and the internet, it’s not uncommon to hear about how such “textspeak ruins language” – how technology has made everybody lazy with their speech and writing. Major media outlets such as the LA Times, the BBC and The Daily Mail have all bemoaned the ways in which people communicate through technology. Of course, language does change when it’s used to text or write messages on the internet. And contrary to the idea that these innovations are corrupting language, they actually demonstrate a creative repurposing of symbols and marks to a new age of technology. Change doesn’t mean decay.

Houston Rockets Fire Social Media Manager After Controversial Tweet.

The NBA’s Tuesday night emoji controversy spilled into Wednesday.

Pink Slip Emoji? Houston Rockets Fire Social Media Manager After Controversial Tweet

The Houston Rockets, whose Twitter account posted a tweet that got everyone’s attention during Game 5 of a Western Conference first-round series against the Dallas Mavericks, fired the person who ran the account. On the day after the tweet in question — which was subsequently deleted — the Rockets dismissed their digital communications manager Chad Shanks, whose attempt at damage control was as good as one could have expected, given the situation.

Those attempts obviously weren’t good enough for the Rockets, whose decision was documented in this brief story by the Houston Chronicle. Here’s a brief recap of the story as it unfolded on Tuesday night, when it was beginning to become apparent that the Rockets were going to win Game 5 and eliminate the Mavericks from the playoffs, four games to one: 92 Teen Text Terms Decoded for Confused Parents. Not so long ago, most teenagers’ text messages read to other people like a jumble of seemingly disconnected letters, numbers, and odd punctuation.

92 Teen Text Terms Decoded for Confused Parents

Using a combination of shortened words, creative spellings, and a liberal sprinkling of unusual punctuation, teen text message mavens created their own form of language — so-called text speak (a term itself boiled down to “txtspk”). These days, teens are texting more than ever, but the advent of QWERTY smartphone keyboards, predictive text, autocorrect, and the removal of message character limits should allow young social butterflies the opportunity to type full, real words. However, the confusing shorthand continues to live on anyway. With the help of Twitter, the microblogging site that still limits each post to a mere 140 characters, abbreviated slang appears to be here to stay.

2015: The Year of Emoji Diversity

Guidelines have previously suggested that emoji people be “as neutral as possible regarding race, ethnicity, and gender”. □ Emojipedia — □ Emoji Meanings □□□□□ How emoji conquered the world. In 1995, sales of pagers were booming among Japan’s teenagers, and NTT Docomo’s decision to add the heart symbol to its Pocket Bell devices let high school kids across the country inject a new level of sentiment (and cuteness) into the millions of messages they were keying into telephones every day.

How emoji conquered the world

Docomo was thriving, with a bona fide must-have gadget on its hands and market share in the neighborhood of 40 percent. But when new versions of the Pocket Bell abandoned the heart symbol in favor of more business-friendly features like kanji and Latin alphabet support, the teenagers that made up Docomo’s core customer base had no problem leaving for upstart competitor Tokyo Telemessage.
