Opinions: New Atheism getting old

KING: Browsing through the ASU events calendar, I was excited to see that Richard Dawkins, the famed evolutionary biologist best known for his harsh criticism of religion, would be speaking at Gammage on the Thursday before spring break. I'd never read any of Dawkins' books, but had seen a handful of his lectures and interviews online and knew that though my opinions were not exactly in line with his, Dawkins was nevertheless an enormously influential and important academic.

Opinions: No LOL-ing matter

WRIGHT: Languages don't change very quickly. We retain most of the same vocabulary, the same syllables and pronunciations, the same syntax and the same grammar. Our Americanized version of English is not terribly different now than it was one hundred years ago. Subjects still come before verbs, we don't have new conjugations, and we still use 26 letters in our alphabet.

What has changed, however, is our colloquial language and slang. From generation to generation, even within a single age group, the language metamorphoses and carries us along for the ride. But sometimes there is a strong resistance to it, and I'm seeing it happen now.
