Internet Style Guide

Postby Slava » Mon Feb 10, 2014 8:10 pm

In an attempt to codify many of the neologisms, coinings, and other random events on the Internet, the site Buzzfeed and written a style guide. Here's an article about it, with a link to the actual thing inside it. I wonder if it will work.

Something that would help me would be standardizing the syntax for search engines. Some use quotation marks, others don't. Some require a + sign, others go with a comma. All return too many links that happen to have just one of the words in your term, or words that aren't paired.
Life is like playing chess with chessmen who each have thoughts and feelings and motives of their own.

Using Google with quotes around the words you want will cut out a lot of that, but not all of it.

After reading the article and the BuzzFeed article, it occurs to me that this could be an exciting time for those that study the development of language. Today's technology is developing so fast, and words must be coined along with that development, a current study could be a lot like fruit flies for evolution. By that I mean the fruit flies reproduce so rapidly and generations come so quickly that one can study what happens with mutations instead of waiting years. A similar explosion is happening in technology, where new things pop up all the time. A similar, if lesser, thing happened in the development of CB slang.
