Internet has become an indispensable part of our life, and in recent years, an increasing number of buzzwords emerged into our vision. Many people regard these Internet buzzwords as shining stars, adding creativity and vitality to our language, and leading to more effective communication among young people. However, defenders of traditional language hold that Internet buzzwords are likely to get in the way of young people’s learning of standard language and can be difficult to understand for the elder generation.
As far as I am concerned, while Internet buzzwords make some difference to our culture, they cannot become the mainstream of our culture. Internet buzzwords do make our communication funnier and more vivid. But they only enjoy a high popularity among students and youngsters, and cannot be accepted by the majority. Although Internet buzzwords bring a sense of novelty among users, they cannot be fully understood by all people in real life. Some of these words are beyond our acceptability and are confusing to comprehend. Moreover, such informal language may have adverse effect on the sound development of our language and culture if used in news and formal documents.
In conclusion, I firmly believe that as the younger generation, we should assume the responsibility to purify our standard and maintain cultural purity. In this way, we should not widely use the Internet buzzwords without limits.
