It was the emoticon called “Face with Tears of Joy” (Fig. 1). As a reason for that choice, the company named the huge popularity of this image. It was the globally most used emoticon in 2015 according to the technology business SwiftKey.

Further reasons are the rising use of all kinds of pictographs online and the possibility to communicate despite language barriers.

Many people highly criticized Oxford University Press' decision as signifying the demise of the English language.

While internet slang may have a great impact on the way how teenagers communicate, it certainly is a also quite excluding for many people.

In a survey by Professor John Sutherland, who works at the University College of London, 2,000 parents were asked to explain several slang words and acronyms. Under those expressions were for example capitalizations such as TBT (Throwback Thursday) or words like “on fleek”. The result of the survey shows, that there are not many parents who are mastering teenage slang.

Only around 10% of them were able to come up with the correct meaning of the word “bae”, for instance.

Clearly it is not easy for adults to keep up with youth language, but according to Professor Sutherland internet slang has indeed a certain impact o.....
