Re: “Your writing says more about you than you realize

Dear Mr. Moredock,

Language May be the single greatest invention humanity has come up with. It allows us to share our high level of intelligence with others. It is why things like fire and the wheel caught on. It is how we were able to sail across the oceans and walk on the moon. But language is a fluid idea. Look how many different languages there are, all of them started with a neanderthal pointing at something and grunting distinctly. Then another repeated the grunt and it became a word. Latin is a dead language, but not really because it birthed english, french, and spanish. Spanish birthed portuguese. French and english combined to make creole. How many other examples are there all stemming from that first word? Proper english may be dying and punctuation may be going with it, but nothing is forever. Change may be hard for you Mr. Moredock, but its why dinosaurs don't rule the Earth. The hardest things are the most necessary. I would have thought that you, as a writer, would appreciate the evolution of language more. How many times have you written about technology? Would the terms email or cell phone have meant anything to you or your readers thirty years ago? Ain't was not a word thirty years ago and it is not a word today, unless you talk to one of the three hundred million people in this country that use it. But if it makes you feel any better I did take a quick scan through this post for any blatantly obvious punctuation errors before I hit enter. I hope that I got most of them for you. =)
