Trevor Harvey Posted 4 months ago Jill Shargaa: Please, please, people. Let's put the 'awe' back in 'awesome' Elena, yes, things are changing - for the worse! And we don't deal with it. Awesome has not gained new nuances of meaning. It's ridiculously exhausted, a meaningless mindless throwaway which has lost all relevance. You'll have noticed how most replies to questions now open with the word "So". Politicians and news anchors don't lie, they "misspeak"! America is disseminating its endless fashionable abuse of the English language to the Anglophone community worldwide. Shee-ut, Omygard and Arrsum epitomise the impoverished vernacular of stupified US youngsters. Language defines a country's thought and influence, its cultural direction. What does awesome's ubiquity say about you?
