    I guess the French are perfectionists as well. :)

    Sova, I belong to a generation that is closer to the exit than to the entrance. If you read French blogs by teenagers, you'll see they are burrying the French language under heaps of linguistic filth. :(

    Yes, I for one think more 15 year old American girls need to be criticized. They are the most spoiled group of people I have ever seen. Why? I have no idea. They are ugly (compare a Czech 15 year old girl to an American 15 year old girl :wink: ), they have little class, they are immature, and their attitudes are beyond belief.

    It isn't uncommon to see a Czech 15 year old girl hanging around much older people. You can find them at discos, bars, etc. They are allowed to drink and pretty much do what they want. The class and maturity they display speaks volumes about their parents and teachers. Simply put, they have never been spoiled.

    Trust me, Eastern Europe can be a very tough place for American girls.

    *NOTE* I am not saying every American girl is like that. However, there is a definite trend.

    I really struggle to comprehend the strong desire for linguistic conformity by many. Why should one care if there is a trend for youth to adopt an inferior, 'slang-derived' form of the English language? It descends purely from the movement of popular culture due with infiltration from MTV and the likes. They [collectively] do not intend to spite those with a more developed understanding of the English language, it is just a phase of adolescent pop-culture - that is all. So I ask, how does this impact on those negating the use of this English derivative? Why does it irritate you so much? It is a blatant exaggeration to think that such language would cause a future succession over ideal English. I am a 16 year old and I do not adopt the use of poor English, nor do many others. In reality, proper English will always prevail.. :wink: [/i]

    The ancient Romans complained about it. The musical "Bye, Bye Birdie" had a song about it ("What's the matter with kids today?"). Same old, same old yada, yada, yada. Some things never change. Ain't it great?
