Technology Influences English Writng!

by Dilip S Dahanukar

Author Dilip Dahanukar writes about how the Computer usage has influenced his English language.

I recently wrote an article on Parade Yoga and published it on the world wide web. When I sent a link to some of my friends, they wrote back not so much on the content but more on my style of writing.

They found that computer had influenced my writing style. In my article, when writing about remembering the exercises which helped me most, instead of saying ‘recollecting my memories’ or even 'racking my grey cells’, I wrote “I clicked on the search engine in my brain to list them and then opened the memories of the time when I slipped…!” It was an effect of googalization on my writing! 

And when I wrote about including all forms of exercises in yoga, it was not about creating a category of health care called yoga with all types of exercises included in it, it wasn’t even about classification of different types of exercises under the head ‘yoga’. The words that I wrote were: “In a flash I had opened a new folder called “YOGA” and put all types of physical exercise systems in that folder.”  The Windows OS had invaded my brain! 

It was then that I realized how the changing world around us affects how we communicate in our writing. But I took the realization in its stride; there was nothing for me to worry about. After all, I am also flowing with the current.
