Research indicates that Generation Z feels intimidated by full stops, preferring to speak in fragmented English. Full stops are interpreted as angry and insincere, as the creep toward idiocracy continues.
“If you send a text message without a full stop, it’s already obvious that you’ve concluded the message,” linguistic expert Dr. Lauren Fonteyn of Leiden University wrote in a tweet.
“So if you add that additional marker for completion, they will read something into it and it tends to be a falling intonation or negative tone,” she added.
“I’m not sure I agree about emails. I guess it depends how formal they are,” explained Owen McArdle, a University of Cambridge linguist.
“But full stops are, in my experience, very much the exception and not the norm in [young people’s] instant messages, and have a new role in signifying an abrupt or angry tone of voice,” he added.
A Binghamton University in New York study conducted in 2015 with 126 undergraduates showed that ending a sentence normally was now perceived as insincere. Messages that end in exclamation points are looked at as more genuine and profound, according to the study’s findings.
“When speaking, people easily convey social and emotional information with eye gaze, facial expressions, tone of voice, pauses and so on,” said researcher Celia Klin.
“People obviously can’t use these mechanisms when they are texting. Thus, it makes sense that texters rely on what they have available to them – emoticons, deliberate misspellings that mimic speech sounds and, according to our data, punctuation,” she added.
Big League Politics has reported on how the rising political leaders from Generation Z, like anti-gun mouthpiece David Hogg and eco-fascist climate alarmist Greta Thunberg, are advocating immediate leftist totalitarianism:
Parkland gun control activist David Hogg is promoting an anti-Republican group founded by a former Hillary Clinton staffer that has its parent company located at the same address as a George Soros-linked progressive group.
Here is Hogg promoting Town Hall Project, which aims to confront Republican lawmakers at town hall events…
What is Town Hall Project?
Joe Schoffstall reported: Jimmy Dahman, a former field organizer for the Clinton campaign in Iowa, founded the Town Hall Project. Dahman claimed on CNN that the town hall events are “all organic and happening at the grassroots level.”…The Town Hall Project’s parent company is The Action Network, which was involved in demonstrations against Walmart and the protests in Ferguson. The Action Network’s board of directors includes Mark Fleischman, a former vice president of the Service Employees International Union (SEIU); Brian Young, who worked on campaigns for Howard Dean and John Kerry; Jeffrey Dugas, who worked for John Podesta’s Center for American Progress and Elizabeth Warren’s 2012 Senate campaign; and Rich Clayton, who worked for the SEIU and the shareholder activism arm of Change to Win, a labor group that describes itself as a “strategic organizing center.”
The Action Network is located at the same Washington, D.C., address as United We Dream, the “largest immigrant youth-led organization in the nation.” United We Dream has received funding from liberal billionaire George Soros. It began organizing “sanctuary campus” anti-Trump protests shortly after the election.”
The future of America seems bleak with millions of these snowflakes now able to vote away all of their nation’s liberties.
