Grammar in each language has its long evolution, It takes 3000 years to form the current Mandarin, meanwhile, 2000 years has been spent setting English up. The language has been developed to abbreviation, which is the first alphabet of each word; for example, “going to” which means that indeed plan to do something has become “gonna” which provides similar meaning and favoured among America. Sometimes language restructure is caused by borrowing foreign language. English borrows some words from either Greek or Latin while both Japanese and Korean borrow some of their words from Mandarin; for example beautiful, can be taken off the suffix to beauty being a noun, again, It’s able to be rooted to beau meaning beautiful in Greek.
Furthermore, New words have been created following new intelligent technology like twit from Twitter, the application for real time post and follow anyone interested, which makes the word twit mean post. A number of chat applications cause spreading of slang and short message which was widely used in informal contact, chat, as well as caption. Though, we can also get the meaning through typing few letters.
