Language and human ecology in the changing society

Annotation

We analyze the signs of the changed world in which a modern, changing human lives. We list some of the most significant types of changes associated with scientific and technological progress and its impact on human life and the functioning of his language. Particular attention is paid to the new information environment in which speaking human is immersed, and its impact on the human himself and his language, on altered communication styles. All types and forms of altered human communication are described in detail under the influence of a communicative environment altered in dynamics: accelerated communication, clip-like consciousness, expressiveness, emotionality, deverbalization, transition to communication with meanings, transformation and deformation of human, as homo sapiens. The main conclusion is the deecologization of both the changing world and the communicants in it, as well as their language. We reveal the main characteristics of the altered communication, in which many aspects of the language are reflected: intonation, orthoepy, accentology, spelling, punctuation, vocabulary, syntax. We emphasize the dominance of negative emotions in all sorts and types of communication and the positivity of a changing era, where the digital world holds a huge place: digital transformations, digital economy, digital television, artificial intelligence, cybernetics, robotology.
