LOL: Losing Our Language
LOL is a tongue-in-cheek look at language trends in the wireless age through the jaundiced eye of a self-hating Luddite and grammar scold.
LOL: Losing Our Language is an irreverent guide to what’s funny about the American English vernacular in the new millennium. LOL sheds crocodile tears over the fate of our language as it bends to the will of such pervasively destructive influences as adolescent bloggers and semi-literate pop culture icons. If you believe the recent wholesale changes in the vernacular are a sign of the impending apocalypse, LOL is required reading.
