English began more and more to be the default choice for major (broadly metropolitan) literary writers such as, in the late fourteenth century, Geoffrey Chaucer, John Gower (who still also wrote major poems in French and Latin), and (although his milieu was rather different) William Langland.
We also continue to find substantial literary works from parts of the country far removed from London, and reflecting very distinct local varieties of English, such as , which emerged from the circle of followers of the reformer John Wyclif.
After the Norman Conquest, the ruling elite in England (in church as well as state) were French speakers.
Before the Conquest, England had been relatively ‘advanced’ in the extent to which the vernacular language, rather than Latin, was used in writing.
The students "used few abbreviations, acronyms, and emoticons".
Out of 2,185 transmissions, there were 90 initialisms in total; LOL, ROFL, and other initialisms have crossed from computer-mediated communication to face-to-face communication.
Yunker and Barry in a study of online courses and how they can be improved through podcasting have found that these slang terms, and emoticons as well, are "often misunderstood" by students and are "difficult to decipher" unless their meanings are explained in advance.
They single out the example of "ROFL" as not obviously being the abbreviation of "rolling on the floor laughing" (emphasis added).
Pre-dating the Internet and phone texting by a century, the way to express laughter in morse code is "hi hi".The former is a self-reflexive representation of an action: I not only do something but also show you that I am doing it.Or indeed, I may not actually laugh out loud but may use the locution 'LOL' to communicate my appreciation of your attempt at humor." David Crystal notes that use of LOL is not necessarily genuine, just as the use of smiley faces or grins is not necessarily genuine, posing the rhetorical question "How many people are actually 'laughing out loud' when they send LOL? Victoria Clarke, in her analysis of telnet talkers, states that capitalization is important when people write LOL, and that "a user who types LOL may well be laughing louder than one who types lol", and opines that "these standard expressions of laughter are losing force through overuse".We have some substantial literary texts, such as the and a small group of texts in a very similar language apparently from a very similar milieu, we can identify mini-traditions of English writing; but what we do not have are clear, well-established, persistent traditions of writing in English (whether for literary or non-literary purposes) from which any sort of standard written variety could grow.From the later fourteenth century our records become more plentiful, especially for London, as the use of English increased in literary contexts and in a variety of different technical and official functions.
