(Like, Literally) ] क़ ePUB Author John McWhorter ড A best selling linguist takes us on a lively tour of how the English language is evolving before our eyes and why we should embrace this transformation and not fight it Language is always changing but we tend not to like it We understand that new words must be created for new things, but the way English is spoken today rubs many of us the wrong way Whether it s the use of literally to mean figuratively rather than by the letter or the way young people use LOL and like, or business jargon like what s the ask it often seems as if the language is deteriorating before our eyes But the truth is different and a lot less scary, as John McWhorter shows in this delightful and eye opening exploration of how English has always been in motion and continues to evolve today Drawing examples from everyday life and employing a generous helping of humor, he shows that these shifts are a natural process common to all languages and that we should embrace and appreciate these changes, not condemn them Words on the Move opens our eyes to the surprising backstories to the words and expressions we use every day Did you know that silly once meant blessed Or that ought was the original past tense of owe Or that the suffix ly in adverbs is actually a remnant of the word like And have you ever wondered why some people from New Orleans sound
