Daily Prompt: Morphing
Language evolves. The meaning of a word can shift over time as we use it differently — think of “cool,” “heavy,” or even “literally.”
Today, give a word an evolutionary push: give a common word a new meaning, explain it to us, and use it in the title of your post.
How in the world has:
Sup, with ahead nod, replaced whats up which in turn replaced hello many moons ago? I don’t usually hear this term ‘sup’ from adults. Just wait a few more years and hello will have been officially replaced.
Without going on a rant..let me say, I do not appreciate the morphing of the words via the younger generation. Something about the general lack of respect troubles my soul. Has the 20 something generation and younger became so lazy that the can’t finish pronouncing their syllables?
I believe that respect has been replaced with passiveness. We don’t like things but we must be politically correct. We want to let everyone experience their own self expression..
If we don’t teach the younger generation to respect other people, especially their elders, we can’t expect them to MORPH into respective adults. I see the word children morphing into heathen..not good.
People say the world is going to Hell in a hand basket. I say…we are letting it..
