The decay of the English language

The English language is falling into decay, especially by the following three venues: rap music, texting and everyday speech. Indeed, all three of them are making it hard to communicate properly with one another.

Rap music, to be sure, has a lot of cursed—and—racist language to it, and such dismal language is changing the manner in which people express themselves, all to the detriment of proper English usage.

Texting is destroying sentence structure to a large degree, and, as a result, one can only guess what the future has in store for the English language, especially in its formal discipline: Do u understand me?

Everyday speech is becoming careless these days. People, indeed, blurt out any old language with total disregard for proper English skills. For example, many people nowadays speak the following sentence— "This is him, or her." Actually, the correct usage is the following: "This is he, or she."

In these sentences, "is" is a to-be verb and hence needs a subject, not an object. However, many kids these days say "who cares" about that distinction. All people should care about proper language skills.

If the English language decays at the point of no return, then the human ability to reason will also decay. Hence, a nuclear holocaust looms more and more into the forefront of conditional mankind.

The decay of English is on the rise, and with that decay comes an American society ill-prepared to reason properly which makes this grown man often cry like a baby.
