Language as a developing phenomenon

Language as a developing phenomenon

With the help of the language, the present and the past of mankind are connected, thanks to it we have preserved scientific achievements and cultural ones. And most importantly, thanks to the language, the experience of our ancestors is transmitted. The language is replenished by all inhabitants of the Earth who have ever lived on it, the people invest in it and joy, and grief, and love and hatred. The entire spirituality of mankind is preserved in every word.

Such a rich language, in which many shades and halftones can not stand still, it constantly develops, replenishing with new words. New norms of language are very often born in public speech, also in individual localities of our vast country, such words are called dialectisms. For example, felt boots in one locality are called pima or potatoes – bulba. But many well-known writers are sure that such words do not increase the richness of our language, they do not need us. This is not in all cases, it is true, because there are dialectisms with which you can express the idea more accurately than if you use the literary language. But all the same, over time, some expressions and words are forgotten by people and go down in history.

Today the language is replenished with the words of youth – slang, this is a kind of jargon. These words are primitive and their meaning is not deep. Most experts – linguists are sure that the age of these words is short. These words do not carry a great semantic load, they are not interesting to educated and intelligent people, they are used only by teenagers, striving to distinguish themselves from adults and show their individuality and dissimilarity to others. These words do not oust literary words from the Russian language.

Language will always evolve: some words will disappear from use, others will come!
