This is a problem because once in the position of being seen as an adult, it means that you must behave in a certain way and give off a certain sense about you that shows maturity and education, where having improper speech mannerisms and using slang can bring about the assumption of one being uneducated or immature.
The use of electronic media has hindered communication socially and emotionally that is the result from the absence of traditional attributes inherent in conversations such as facial expression (Loos, Haddon & Mante-Meijer 2008), body language, and tone of voice (Barker & Angelopulo 2006)....
Under normal circumstances, the course I am offering this semester at Eugene Lang College would be a standard academic affair, as it has been in the recent past. We would read and discuss key works in the sociology of media and the public domain, explore together how publics are mediated, and consider pressing public problems: how public concerns appear, are expressed, addressed and confronted, and how such confrontation facilitates political power — both of the state and society.

This brought shivers down Arissa’s spine; it read: “You have successfully reached half way through Slang Hollows Lane.” It was then Arissa knew that they had entered the wrong lane.
Most Filipinos in Louisiana speak English and Tagalog, the language of Manila and the surrounding provinces, which has been designated the Philippine national language and renamed Pilipino. Some also speak Spanish. According to Zenaida Bayuga of Jefferson, every person who moved to the United States from the Philippines speaks Tagalog, while most of those born here speak it with varying degrees of fluency. Even those who cannot respond to a question in Tagalog still sing some of the important songs in the language. In regard to the numerous languages with which she grew up, Mrs. Bayuga says, "Filipinos are multilingual." In the islands, there are eight major languages and an estimated 121 dialects. Mrs. Bayuga notes, "Depending on their education, they usually learn Tagalog and also English, which was used in school above the second grade for many years." Islanders also speak the dialect spoken in the region in which they grew up. The eight major dialects are Tagalog, Cebuano, Hiligaynon, Ilocano, Bicol, Samareño, Pampango, and Pangasinan. Some Louisiana residents still speak their home dialect, but most report that there are not enough people to practice with, and it is enough of a challenge to maintain both Tagalog and English.
People hear our names and think we are Latino. We are not Latino; we are Asian! The Filipino people were given Spanish names by the Spanish, and we had, of course, to learn the language. In fact, we can tell which province of the Philippines people lived in during the time of Spanish colonization. They grouped the names they assigned to the people. People who lived in a certain area were given names that begin with A, B, C, and in a different area they had names like Ramirez, Sanchez, and Tuazon. So the name is almost like a zip code, telling where the families lived at that time.
The Oxford English Dictionary defines slang (in reference to language) in three different ways: 1) the special vocabulary used by any set of persons of a low or disreputable character; language of a low and vulgar type 2) the special vocabulary or phraseology of a particular calling or profession; the cant or jargon of a certain class or period 3) language of a highly colloquial type, considered as below the level of standard educated speech, and consisting either of new words or of current words employed in some special sense....
Filipino associations also sponsor activities that facilitate assimilation into, and enjoyment of, traditional Louisiana celebrations. For years the local chapter of the social organization Caballeros de Dimas-Alang sponsored a Filipino float in the Elks parade, the procession (parade) that follows Rex along its Uptown route on Mardi Gras morning. The group, first organized by Hermogenes "Slim" Del Prado, built and decorated innovative floats that differed from others in their use of natural materials as decorations and also with the incorporation of a motorized truck rather than the then-customary horse- or mule-drawn float. For its first three years, from 1935 to 1937, and again in 1946, theirs was awarded the first-place prize as the most popular and beautiful float.
We hold these truths to be self-evident: that language is expression of thought, in the form of speech or written symbols, that have agreed-upon meanings....
