A Dose Of Buckley 38 – “Missioning”

I’ve always had a theory that in 100 years from now, as this generation of morons have even dumber children, that the Dictionary will either become thicker when it includes alternate spellings for words (“Action – see also: Akshun, Actoin, Acshon”) or become pocket-sized when future generations remove words because they’re too big and complex (anything more than 7 letters that can’t just be shortened by removing all of its vowels). The language is in trouble…

So, there’s something frustrating to me about people who are barely literate themselves coming up with new words or uses for new words. In my second of two Dose of Buckley’s this week, I look at the word “Mission”, which is now being used by this generation as a verb (that’s “akshun werd” to some of you). Some examples: “I want to mission downtown this weekend”, instead of saying “I want to go downtown to party this weekend until I can’t see or remember my own name”, or “I’m missioning to Toronto to see [insert name of indie band that hipsters love and no one else has ever heard of] on Friday”.
