“English as it is spoken today will have disappeared in 100 years and could be replaced by a global language called Panglish, researchers claim.

“New words will form and meanings will change with the most dramatic changes being made by people learning English as a second language, says Dr Edwin Duncan, a historian of English at Towson University in Maryland, in the US.”

Abbreviations – mike or mic?

This little puzzle came to my attention today and got me thinking – is mike or mic short for microphone. Well, in common usage, both are correct. Pubs advertise ‘open mike’ and ‘open mic’ – but publicans are not so often also grammarians, so lets have a look at this sticky problem.

If one is going to be pedantic, and I often am, ‘mike’ is the short form of microphone, and ‘mic’ is the abbreviation of it (used a lot in the audio world). ‘Mike’ is a word, ‘mic’ is not. Bicycle is shortened to ‘bike’, and definitely not ‘bic’ (the latter being a generic name for a ball-point pen).

Which is right and which is wrong? It depends on the world you are working in and writing about. Was that helpful? Probably not. Language is not a science …

Get it right!

Question: How do you feel when you read the English language pages of a website and discover spelling or grammar mistakes?
I think that you might think twice about using their services.
So, what about your company’s English web pages – have you had them checked by a professional? Would you like to lose even one customer just because you didn’t?

Having your web pages checked by a professional is not expensive at all – just €30 for each thousand words. Can you afford not to?
