Sven Birkerts identifies language erosion as one of the morbid symptoms of the electronic age: “Syntactical masonry is already a dying art; simple linguistic pre-fab is the norm. Ambiguity, paradox, irony, subtlety, and wit – fast disappearing. In their place, the simple ‘vision thing.’” The popularity of James Cameron’s Avatar may prove the worldwide spread of this morbid symptom.
