    So, reducing the amount of vocabulary used by your average human is considered evolving the language. I do not follow your logic.

    Evolving does not mean positive progress, it means a change from the old, adapting to a new way or variety. SO, the gradual lowering of the average iq is still eveoltion.

    "Pwn"(pwned, pwnt, etc) was started by a typo.

    A long time ago, when a ton of people still player multiplayer Warcraft 2 on battle.net, someone made a map. In the map description, it was supposed to include the word, "owned", instead.. he made a typo, unknown to him. He hit the p key, rather than the o, (and they are right next to eachother), and threw the map onto battle.net. People noticed, and it instantly caught on, and that is how "pwned" was born.

    It`s alright when it`s used on the internet, but with idiots around "failing" people when they drop a pen at school... it`s not fun anymore. D-:

    Mikeeegeee, you should be happy that "fail" exists, because the fact that this term exists is an indicator of linguistic health.

    Bastardization says you. Healthy change says the field of linguistics.

    The first time he said "Engrish" I thought it was a mistake. The second time he said it I figured it must refer to Japanese video game makers attempts to use English. Hence, the replacing of the l with an r. Isn`t that racist?
    Though it is a scientific fact that people who natively speak most Asian languages can`t differentiate between the English l and r sounds.

    I`m pretty sure pwn is pronounced "pone". Though I refuse to actually ever use the word. Just like I refuse to ever use "fail" unless it is the proper grammatical term. It would work most of the time if you people (that`s right, YOU people) would just add an s.

    Read RyanF701 for an explanation on why pwn is pronounced "pone".

    Red5TheFinn, so it`s pronounced "own"? I don`t get it. I`m not up on my "memes" so I am in no way an authority. I just had a friend who played World of Warcraft all the time and he pronounced it "pone." Plus, I figured if it was supposed to be own, but had a p instead, it would rhyme with own, but with a p at the beginning.

    SuperSmash, that`s a common mistake for noobs, saying pone is not correct, like any other interent meme/typo it`s pronounced the same
    liek=like
    teh=the
    pwn=own
    Does that make sense?
    And NEVER trust WoW nubs for meme confimation....or confirmation on anything else.

    Fa11enAnge1z, though I know it`s wrong, I always thought pawn made sense. It`s like telling someone they`re basically useless and their only purpose is to be sacrificed for the greater good.
