The Technological revolution brought with it the information revolution which, in turn, ushered in the communication revolution. It is quite ironical then, that the generation which spent its adolescent years in this communication revolution lack, the basic communication skills.
We live in a world where youngsters have a limited repertoire of expressions. These are the kids who spend rest of their time pouring over online social networking websites-a time which is limited to superficial interaction with acquaintances and most of it goes into just browsing over other people’s lives. The days of letter writing with comprehensive description of one’s life are long gone. Those were times when communication could not make with the click of a button hence it was a necessity to have effective communication skills. but now the current generation has developed a new language which is better known as the” sms language” where the vocabulary is significantly reduced to a few functional words and even those select few functional words are reduced in length. For example,”How are you” becomes “Hw r u “,”tomorrow” becomes “2moro”,”awesome” becomes “awsm",and so on so forth.
