    Though these words might seem mindboggling in the beginning, they actually contribute to the progression of the language… The English Fanboys might beg to differ, but me thinkz u need to keep urself updated with the in-thing in the language so you dont get left out πŸ™‚

    Agree with Chill here. I think the reason English is becoming the lingua franca of the world is this very ability to embrace all sorts of slang and neologisms as and when the need arises

    @Chill,krishashok: absolutely. no doubts.. not that I am against it.. anyday i would prefer to ask someone “how about coffee” than “caffediem” or say ” feel like banging my head on the wall/desk” than “headdesk”.. maybe this would be better used in written communication or informal communication than oral.. the problem with such urbanisation of the language is things get to such a low as you start seeing the words “cum” replacing “come” in emails, chats.. i agree we dont have to be formal in everything but not miss the whole language by a mile in trying to be informal.. that is the only point…
    I would think these are like fashion and trends where you just keep abreast of them but use it only if the fashion suits or need arises.. and definitely with you on that..

    @chengizkhan: if I may say triple true.. πŸ™‚

    @sangs: welcome to my blog.. LOL πŸ™‚ lolluthaan.. πŸ˜‰ sometimes unparliamentary words become parliamentary with a small change…:)

    Siva,
    True. When it goes against clarity of communication, I agree too. But let’s remember that spellings undergo changes all the time. For instance, Spencer Johnson wrote Faerie Queene in the 12th century, and by the 15th century, the trailing “e” had more or less disappeared. So in another 100 yrs from now, perhaps, it might become Feri, who knows πŸ™‚
    So while spelling changes tend to originate in informal mispellings, they have, in the past, entered formal language, as we saw with the example above

    @krishashok: absolutely.. agree… evolution of language is something we will have to live with and absorb too.. on a lighter vein there seems to be something wrong with the alphabet “e”… from 15th century this letter e has been missing in words..but at the beginning of the millennium anything related to internet had an “e” added at the beginning..e commerce and what not.. but now people seem to think attaching an “e” is against things related to the internet world.. thats why we seem to have flickr,zoomr and what not… the letter e seems to be losing out and may not be a vowl( i meant to say vowel) πŸ™‚
