ಬದಲಾಗುತ್ತಿರುವ ಇಂಗ್ಲಿಷ್ ಕಾಗುಣಿತ ಮತ್ತು ವ್ಯಾಕರಣ

ಇಂದಿನ ಯುವ ಪೀಳಿಗೆ ‘ಇ- ಮೇಲ್’’ ಮತ್ತು ‘ಎಸ್ ಎಮ್ ಎಸ್’’ಗಳಲ್ಲಿ ಬಳಸುತ್ತಿರುವ ಇಂಗ್ಲಿಷ್ ಅನ್ನು ಅರ್ಥೈಸಲು ನನಗೆ ಕಷ್ಟವಾಗುತ್ತಿದೆ. ಉದಾ: rchd bs stp. wtng4bs. ಬಹುಶಃ ನಾನು ಕಲಿತ ಇಂಗ್ಲಿಷ್ ಕಾಗುಣಿತ ಮತ್ತು ವ್ಯಾಕರಣ ‘ಔಟ್ ಡೇಟೆಡ್’ ಆಗಿರುವುದು ಇದಕ್ಕೆ ಕಾರಣವಿರ ಬಹುದು. ನನ್ನ ಹತ್ತಿರ ಇರುವ ನಿಘಂಟುಗಳೇ ಆಗಲಿ ವ್ಯಾಕರಣ ಪುಸ್ತಕಗಳೇ ಆಗಲಿ ಈ ದಿಶೆಯಲ್ಲಿ ಯಾವ ನೆರವನ್ನೂ ನೀಡುತ್ತಿಲ್ಲ. ಏಕೆಂದರೆ, ಪೀಳಿಗೆ ‘ಇ- ಮೇಲ್’’ ಮತ್ತು ‘ಎಸ್ ಎಮ್ ಎಸ್’’ಗಳಲ್ಲಿ ಪ್ರಥಮಾಕ್ಷರಿಗಳ (ಅಕ್ರೊನಿಮ್) ಹಾವಳಿ ಅಧಿಕವಾಗಿದೆ. ಈ ಪ್ರಥಮಾಕ್ಷರಿಗಳು ಇಂದಿನ ಯುವ ಪೀಳಿಗೆಯ ಸೃಷ್ಟಿ ಆಗಿರುವುದರಿಂದ ಯಾವ ನಿಘಂಟುಗಳಲ್ಲಿಯೂ ಇವು ಇಲ್ಲ. ಇವನ್ನು ವ್ಯಾಕರಣ ಶಾಸ್ತ್ರ ಇನ್ನೂ ಒಪ್ಪಿಕೊಂಡಿಲ್ಲ. ಇಂದಿನ ಯುವ ಪೀಳಿಗೆಯವರು ನನ್ನನ್ನು ‘ಔಟ್ ಡೇಟೆಡ್ ಓಲ್ಡ್ ಮ್ಯಾನ್’ ಎಂದು ಪರಿಗಣಿಸುವಂತಾಗಬಾರದು ಎಂಬುದಕ್ಕೋಸ್ಕರ ಇಂಥ ಪದಗಳನ್ನು ಕಂಠಸ್ಥಗೊಳಿಸಲು ನಿರ್ಧರಿಸಿದ್ದೇನೆ. ಈ ಗುರಿ ಸಾಧಿಸಲೋಸುಗ ಈ ಹೊಸ ಪ್ರಥಮಾಕ್ಷರಿಗಳ ಪಟ್ಟಿಯನ್ನು ಅಂತರ್ಜಾಲದ ನೆರವಿನಿಂದ ತಯಾರಿಸುತ್ತಿದ್ದೇನೆ. ಇದನ್ನು ಕಂಠಸ್ಥಗೊಳಿಸಲು ಸಾಧ್ಯವಾಗದಿದ್ದರೆ ಇದನ್ನು ಬೆರಳಚ್ಚಿಸಿ ಒಂದು ಪ್ರತಿಯನ್ನು ಸದಾ ಜೇಬಿನಲ್ಲಿ ಇಟ್ಟುಕೊಳ್ಳುವ ಇರಾದೆ ನನ್ನದು. ನಾನು ಸಂಗ್ರಹಿಸಿರುವ ಎಸ್ ಎಮ್ ಎಸ್ ಪ್ರಥಮಾಕ್ಷರಿಗಳ ಪಟ್ಟಿ ಲಗತ್ತಿಸಿದ್ದೇನೆ. ಇದನ್ನು ಪರಿಷ್ಕರಿಸಲು ಎಸ್ ಎಮ್ ಎಸ್ ಪರಿಣತ ಯುವವಾಚಕ ಮಹಾಶಯರ ನೆರವು ಕೋರುತ್ತಿದ್ದೇನೆ. ನೆರವಿನ ಮಹಾಪೂರದ ನಿರೀಕ್ಷೆ ನನ್ನದು.

ಅಂದ ಹಾಗೆ, ಇಂಗ್ಲಿಷ್ ಭಾಷೆಯೇ ಯುರೋಪಿಯನ್ ಯೂನಿಯನ್ನಿನ ಅಧಿಕೃತ ಭಾಷೆ ಎಂದು ಒಪ್ಪಂದವಾಗಿದೆಯಂತೆ. ಒಪ್ಪಂದಕ್ಕೆ ಜನಮನ್ನಣೆ ಸಿಕ್ಕಬೇಕಾದರೆ ಇಂಗ್ಲಿಷ್ ಕಾಗುಣಿತವನ್ನು ಬಳಕೆದಾರ ಸ್ನೇಹಿಯಾಗಿಸಬೇಕು ಎಂದೂ ತೀರ್ಮಾನಿಸಲಾಗಿದೆಯಂತೆ. ಈ ಕುರಿತು ಅಂತರ್ಜಾಲದಲ್ಲಿ ಲಭ್ಯವಿರುವ ಹಾಸ್ಯ ಲೇಖನವನ್ನೂ ಲಗತ್ತಿಸಿದ್ದೇನೆ. ಬದಲಾವಣೆ ತರುವ ನಮ್ಮ ಪ್ರಯತ್ನಗಳು ಇಂತಾಗದಿರಲೆಂದು ಪ್ರಾರ್ಥಿಸುತ್ತೇನೆ.

Euro-English

The EU announces changes to the spellings of common English words…

European Union commissioners have announced that agreement has been reached to adopt English as the preferred language for European communications, rather than German, which was the other possibility.

As part of the negotiations, Her Majesty”s Government conceded that English spelling had some room for improvement and has accepted a five year phase plan for what will be known as Euro-English (Euro for short).

In the first year, “s” will be used instead of the soft “c”. Sertainly, sivill servants will resieve this news with joy. Also the hard “c” will be replaced with “k”. Not only will this klear up konfusion, but typwriters kan have one less letter.

There will be growing publik enthusiasm in the sekond year, when the troublesome “ph” will be replaced by “f”. This will make words like “fotograf” 20 per sent shorter.

In the third year, publik akseptanse of the new spelling kan be expekted to reach the stage where more komplikated changes are possible. Government will enkorage the removal of double letters, which have always ben a deterent to akurate speling.

Also, al wil agre that the horible mes of silent “e””s in the languag is disgrasful, and they would go.

By the fourth year, peopl wil be reseptiv to steps such as replasing “th” by “z” and “w” by “v”. During ze fifz year, ze unesesary “o” kan be dropd from vords kontaining “ou” and similar changes vud of kors be aplid to ozer kombinations of leters.

After zis fifz yer, ve vil hav a reli sensibl riten styl. Zer vil be no mor trubls or difikultis and evrivon vil find it ezi tu understand ech ozer. Ze drem vil finali kum tru.

e no mor trubls or difikultis and evrivon vil find it ezi tu understand ech ozer. Ze drem vil finali kum tru.

ಬದಲಾಗುತ್ತಿರುವ ಇಂಗ್ಲಿಷ್ ಕಾಗುಣಿತ ಮತ್ತು ವ್ಯಾಕರಣ ಗೆ 5 ಪ್ರತಿಕ್ರಿಯೆಗಳು

  1. ಜಿ.ಎನ್.ಅಶೋಕವರ್ಧನ ಹೇಳುತ್ತಾರೆ:

    ನನ್ನ ಬಳಿ ಚರವಾಣಿ ಇಲ್ಲದೆ ನಿಮ್ಮಂತೆ ಸಂಗ್ರಹಾವಕಾಶ ಇಲ್ಲವಾಗಿದೆ 😦 ಆದರೂ ನನ್ನ ಮಿತಿಯಲ್ಲಿ ಕ್ಯಾಲ್ಸ್ – Cals (ನನ್ನ ‘ಪೆಲ್ಲಿಂಗ್’ ತಪ್ಪಿರಬಹುದು) ಅಂದರೆ Calculator ನಿಮ್ಮ ಕೋಶಕ್ಕೆ ಸೇರಿಸಿಕೊಳ್ಳಬಹುದು.
    ಅಶೋಕ

  2. Nimma Abhimani ಹೇಳುತ್ತಾರೆ:

    Few observations from my side on this topic:

    I’m surprised to see some of the current generation students using these acronyms in their final year college project reports.

    Using these acronyms in official email communications.

ನಿಮ್ಮದೊಂದು ಉತ್ತರ
