What should we talk about in this class?

Good question! I would like to explore how people talk differently in various contexts. We all change our tone and way of speaking given the environment we are placed in. News anchors are trying to relate (target) a young audience by talking in code. I never thought I would hear “lol”, “wtf” or “lmao” from the news. This approach didn’t seem to relate at all- it kind of sounded like one of your parents trying to be hip and “with the times” when clearly they aren’t.
