all circles presuppose
they'll end where they begin
but only in their leaving
can they ever come back 'round
all circles presuppose

we’re taking a group of people who have insider knowledge of the English language (or at least a good grasp of it) and placing them in a new, unfamiliar, virtual space. This space introduces visual aids to language in the form of photos and gifs, the ability to comment on someone else’s text in a reblog and the ability to communicate a lot of information in very few words using hashtags. We also see the creation of tone in a toneless medium. In order to simulate conversational patterns in writing we SHOUT WHEN WE’RE SUPER EXCITED or *psssst whisper when we’re pretending to tell someone a secret while perfectly aware that anyone on the internet can read what we’re saying.* slash the coolest bit tho is that u can like ironically forgo all capitalization and punctuation just write in a weird speech pattern its ok everyone will still understand maybe it even helps read the text more quickly because nothing is interrupting the flow of words

In short, this dialect results when people who already share a language are given new tools. The result isn’t a butchering of English language but a creative experiment with it. Am I claiming that the Internet as a whole is operating on a level of postmodernism that would make Joseph Heller, Kurt Vonnegut and Thomas Pynchon seem like novices? maybe i am maybe im not u punk wut of it like who r u to tell me otherwise


Tia Baheri: “Your Ability to Can Even: A Defense of Internet Linguistics" | The Toast

Totally worth reading the whole article, especially the part on Tumblr and gender.

Internet linguistics is super fascinating to me. 

(via mumblingsage)

This whole article is absolutely fascinating. As someone who is older than the average tumblr user, and someone who can be a bit of a grammar freak, it took me a long time to get used to the Tumblrisms, but now I find them incredibly useful.

i am and have always been of the opinion that my own sexuality was a free choice and decision i made and as my gender identity becomes more fluid i feel very much in control of choosing it’s direction (which i can and will continue to change as i choose)


the confederate flag is racist

"omg no it’s not! i’m just proud of my heritage!"

which is treating other human beings as property
