Web browsers first appeared on computers in the earlier 1990s. Since then, the internet has greatly changed the way people communicate. But some teachers think the changes are not all for the better.

网络浏览器第一次在电脑上出现是在二十世纪九十年代。自那之后,网络已经非常大地影响了人们的交流方式。但是,教师们认为这些变化并不都是更好的。

Eleanor Johnson is an English professor at Columbia University in New York.

Eleanor Johnson是 纽约哥伦比亚大学的一位英语教授。

"I think that text messaging has made students believe that it's far more acceptable than it actually is to just make screamingly atrocious spelling and grammatical errors."

“我认为字面的信息已经让学生们相信,令人惊愕的、严重的拼写和语法错误实际上并不是那么难以让人接受。”

She says her students over the past several years have increasingly used less formal English in their writing. She says words and phrases like "guy" and "you know" now appear in research papers.

她说过去的几年中她的学生已越来越少在他们的写作中使用正规的英语。她说诸如“家伙”和“你也清楚”的单词和短语现在出现在研究论文中。

And she now has to talk about another problem in class, she says -- incorrect word use. For example, a student says "preclude" instead of "precede" when talking about one event coming before another. It sounds like precede but it means prevent.

并且,她现在不得不谈论在课堂上的另一个问题,她说,是错别字。例如,当一个学生想说一件事情发生在另一件事情前面时,会说 "preclude" 而不 "precede" 。它听起来像是“先于”,但是它的意思是“阻止”。

Professor Johnson suspects a strong link between the rise of instant and casual communication online and an increase in writing mistakes. But she admits there may not be much scientific evidence, at least not yet.

JOHNSON 教授认为即时的和偶然的网络交流和语法错误的增加有很强的联系。但是她承认没有科学的证据,至少还没有(证据)。

David Crystal is a British linguist who has written more than one hundred books, including the book "language and the internet." he says the actively changing nature of internet makes it difficult to stay current in studying its effects. But he believes its influence on language is small.

David Crystal 是一位已经写了一百多本书的英国语言学家,包括《语言和网络》。他说网络活跃的自然属性使得要静态地研究它的影响很难。但是他相信网络对语言的影响是小的。

"The main effects of the internet on language has been to increase the expressive richness of language, providing the language with a new set of communicative dimensions that haven't existed in the past."

“网络对语言的影响主要是增加语言表达的丰富性,它给语言增加了用于交流的新的角度,这是过去所没有的。”

Erin Jansen is founder of Net lingo, an online dictionary of internet and text messaging terms. She says the new technology has not changed existing language but has greatly added to the vocabulary. "Basically, it's a freedom of expression," she says.

Erin Jansen 是 Net lingo 的发起人,这是一种网络和短语术语的在线词典。她说这一新技术并没有改变现有的语言,但是极大地增加了词汇量。“主要地,这是一种表达的自由。”她说。

And what about teachers who find these new kinds of mistakes in spelling and grammar in their students’ work. What is her message to them?

那么,老师怎么想呢?她发现了在她的学生的作业中这些新的拼写和语法错误?她给他们的建议是什么呢?

"I always advocate, don't get angry or upset about that, get creative. If it's helping the students write more or communicate more in their first draft, that's great. That what teachers and educators want, is to get kids communicating."

“我一直倡导,对这个不要生气和心烦,要有创造性。如果起初有利于学生写得更多、交流得更多,就是成功的。让学生沟通是教师和教育家所希望的”

But Erin Jansen and David Crystal agree with Eleanor Johnson on at least one thing. Teachers need to make sure students understand the uses and rules of language.

但是 Erin Jansen 和 David Crystal 至少在一件事情上同意 Eleanor :老师必须确信学生理解语言的用法和规则。

And that's the VOA special English education report, written by Lawan Davis, with reporting by Rachel Abrams. We want to know what you have to say about the effects of internet on language and writing. post your comments at voaspecialenglish.com. I'm Bob Doughty.
