more for language

The lil kids these days use words like “gonna”, “wanna”. Some puritans would still be thinking about what will become of it if this is how the language decides to grow. Of course these words are something the younger generation has learnt from the environment and from the process of evolution. Puritans might miss this point of evolution and still address it as growth. When the younger generation listens to this they question back this conservative thought saying “Do we really need to use ‘e’ in ‘better’?! If I write it as ‘bettr’, everyone, well almost would recognise what I talking about!”!!

Might seem cryptic to find it in pieces here and there. What if the whole prose is devoid of ‘e’ or the simlars!

makes me wonder!


hmmm… me wonders more and more!

this time put a touch of occupational hazards of half boiled IT. Once in a while I come across a document or two which describes something very clear. Take an example.. method doSomething takes only ArrayList as argument. Here in this piece is it really necessary to say “only”?! I doubt. When you say it takes ArrayList, it takes ArrayList. Nothing more nothing else. Why would any reader want to think of anything else? When ‘only’ is put there its like making simple things simpler.

Another piece that comes to mind is, Definitions. Should one put declarative expressions about what something is or should the stress be more on what can be done or how it can be used. Later is better is I feel. Its lil more abstract than the former.

If something makes one put her gray cells to exercise, its better in the longer run. If it is too plain and overly elaborate (for whatever reason) there is not enough integrity of thought process and weakens the processor. If this becomes part of evolution, it will end up in dilution of race. It already has started perhaps. Various overlooked factors involved just for one reason or two.

hmmm… too much thinkin… eh!? 🙂
