You are quite write! (Yet, I can't help wondering if some good might come of it ... perhaps it will be an evolution that will unite the many-tongued people of this planet with more and more communication ... leading to less revolution ... and more peace. It certainly has opened windows and doors to a lot of people and places in this world. I'm amazed how prevalent English is as a second language ... and texting the preferred choice as it spreads world-wide. But like you, I'm saddened by the great demise of our proper forms. But if it opens doors and windows all over the world that help lead to better understanding and peace, it will be easier to adjust, in more ways than one. Again, very astute observation ... quite write!
