The English language is evolving extremely quickly on the internet. These days, cyber-speak is how netizens communicate in Singapore.

Ruth Wajnryb has compiled common contemporary phrases and words used in the blogosphere known collectively as blogabulary. Ignore them and you may be perceived as an anachronistic dinosaur.

Consider these words: cognitariat (knowledge workers) and digerati (the new literate – those who are skilled in electronic or digital literacy).

Grammarians may baulk at such creative use of the language but ignore these words at your own risk.

Check if this title is available at Public Libraries via the online catalogue on the National Library Board’s website.
