Express Expressions

Looking back on a couple of online conversations with a friend, I realised that people are learning to become very expressive online. This can be great, however, when you think about it, you realise that people are quick to adopt it into their day to day conversations as well.

How many times have you been talking to people and they say “sigh”. People have refrained from actually ‘heaving a sigh of disappointment’ only to actually use the expression in their vocabulary.

It’s also seen with the commonly used “lol” – expanded to ‘laugh out loud’. So people these days have incorporated the word (if you can call it that) into their language. So people today are actually saying “lol” rather than “laughing out loud”.

It makes me wonder if the day will come when people will say “clap” or “applause” rather than actually applauding!
