Social Work & modern language: a tongue in cheek review
Language is evolving, and there are now so many specialist dictionaries and slang phrase books available, it can be hard to keep up.
Many of these new words are ‘portmanteaus’ – when you mash both the sounds and meanings of two words together like chillaxing or shopaholic!
Language in a social work setting is also evolving and this should not be overlooked.
In recognition of this language shift and in the run up to World Social Work Day (WSD) on March 21st 2017, thesocialworkhub is offering a few modern language suggestions for Social Workers and related professions.
A word of warning to any language purists, typo auditors, grammar police or slang busters – you may find our first attempt at a blog and its content hard to stomach.
