Hybrid Language Forms: A Response To The Global Mind Shift


The overwhelming influence of global processes is hard to underestimate or ignore nowadays. It affects every sphere of human activity and penetrates deep into the lives of average citizens. Thus, a new type of person with a new type of mindset is shaped. Apart from putting emphasis on such qualities as tolerance and ability to migrate between different local cultures, it requires a certain degree of ignorance of one’s native or local cultural background including language. Linguistic units and spoken languages react to the changing environment and the challenges it has to offer. Local cultures that build up the linguistic personality of every person are vulnerable to changes and, as any environment, adjust to them to a certain extent possible. As a response to such a mental reality new hybrid forms appear. They tend to be a compromise between the global necessity and the local feeling of self, which is the cornerstone of a harmonious coexistence.
