Does slang degrade or reinvigorate English?

On Sunday, April 22, at 6 p.m. PST I’ll be joining Anu Garg of A Word a Day to discuss the nature of slang: its place in English, whether it represents linguistic innovation or corruption, and why people have such a visceral reaction to it.

It’s an open text chat, meaning that anyone with a computer can sign on to the chat forum and lob questions. I’ll be answering them at 80 words per minute (as fast as I can type) and Anu will be handling moderation. We expect a lively and vigorous conversation from all corners of the Internet.

Join the chat.
