Many writers argue that the start of the technology era has influenced a downward spiral of the grammatical use of most people in society. While I don’t disagree with this, how is this any different than the evolution of the use of language changing periodically to fit different times? The English language used now is a lot different compared to the English of Shakespearean times. So who’s to say that the grammar behind the language has gotten worse when the grammar we use now makes more sense. I know I’m sort of answering my own question with this but this seems like an interesting question, it’s an interesting argument to have on whether our grammatical use of the language is diminishing due to technology or whether it’s evolving with us.
