Pleasant And Welcoming Changes in Language!

Published

on

Changes in Language

Language is a means of communication in all species of animals. Be it humans or other animals, all use language. However, humans are the only species that are blessed with a rich vocabulary. In addition, the human system of language is also universal to a great extent. For instance, the Hindi spoken in different parts of the world may be different. For example, the tone, the use of words, the accent. However, in all these cases the underlying rules of the language are universal. A means that brings together and binds different words of the language is a dictionary. In this post, discover the Pleasant And Welcoming Changes in Language through this very means.

Pleasant And Welcoming Changes in Language

What changes in language are we talking about?

There are a lot of rapid changes which the language of today has gone through. However, the language that we are referring to here is only English. 

In Dictionary Terms…….

Changes in Language

There is a trend of releasing the “Word of the Year” that dictionaries follow. This is usually done by the end of each year. For example, in 2013, the “Word of The Year” was Selfie. However, this year, 2020, has been more eventful as it has to it more than just one Word of the Year.

There are already a lot of changes in the language that have taken place.

The popular US dictionary, Marriam-Webster Dictionary, has made its fasted update in these times of pandemic. For instance, the word Covid was coined by the WHO on February 11. However, by 18th, the word has spread across the globe and had also made a place in the dictionary for itself. This progress is the fasted ever.

In addition, they are also considering to add newly seen words like ‘doomscrolling’ and ‘doomsurfing’. Both of these are pretty recent words. The first one appeared on twitter in 2018. Later, the second one has been recently seen in March for the first time ever.

A huge shout out to the Marriam Webster Dictionary for their decision earlier this year. When a young university graduate sent them a mail pointing out the inadequate nature of their definition of ‘racism’, a pleasant change in language took place. According to the new graduate, the definition should include ongoing systemic oppression as a part of the definition. Later, the editors agreed to this. This extension of the definition will be soon available in the dictionary

The Oxford English Dictionary is looking forward to an update with words like ‘WFH’, ‘Social Distancing’, ‘community spread’, ‘contact tracing’, ‘self-isolate’ and ‘contactless’ in the new edition.

In the Press…….

This one is a subtle yet important change. The news and the press companies will not be capitalizing the ‘Black’. For instance when race ethnicity or culture is being referred to.

The Scrabble Shines As Well………

We all know of the popular game scrabble. The North American Scrabble Players Association has come up with a new stand. They have a demand for restricting the use of 238 words that may stand out as racist or sexist slurs. For example, the N-word, ‘bitch’ or ‘culchie’ are all not welcome. However, the stand they have taken is indeed a welcoming one.

In India…..

Changes in Language

It’s not just in the US or UK, but also in India. For instance, a popular company has brought changes in their language. This is a big change in terms of their identity but a pleasant one. For instance, the brand ‘Fair and Lovely’ has taken a decision to drop ‘Fair’ from their name. The word has been a part of the brand’s identity and many households for many years now.

Brands ………

In addition, other brands that are re-branding are Uncle Ben’s rice, Beso de Negra cookies, Redskins lollies, Chico’s sweets, Eskimo Pie ice-cream, Aunt Jemima syrups and Darlie toothpaste.

Indeed seeing the change in language when it comes to using of derogatory terms or black mascots is a proud one. The idea of saying no to racial stereotyping for gaining profits shall soon end is all we happily hope.
