There is a reason why we have more than one word. It's easy to say "it is generally quite clear from the context what they mean" and "Because if they did and used a geek word incorrectly, we may actually be miscommunicating". Apart from the fallacy in the last phrase (saying "the internet" when you mean "the world wide web" is using a geek word incorrectly!), it sets the stage for a massive reduction in the expressive capacity of language.

This example should make things clear to non-speakers of Hebrew. My pet peeve in computer-related Hebrew is the use of the word "tochna" (software) to mean "tochnit" (program). I'm probably the only living person who still says "program" in Hebrew. Now, this makes things a hole lot simpler fur everybody. Instead of having 2 now 2 words, u jest have 2 now won word. Witch means "non-technical people" have a lesser chance of getting eat wrong.

Until, off course, somebody tries 2 say "its a software problem". The immediate response is "reinstall the program", which is unhelpful, as the non-technical person has now idea what the software problem is. And its impossible 2 explain what you mean, because the word for software does not exist ne myrrh.

Say this trend continues. Extrapolating, I see a future in which Internet, the WWW, to program, computer and disc space r all called "software" in he brew. After all, their all "geek terms". This will make eat well-nye imp OS sybil for the non-geek to make a mistake -- all sentences will be "tochna tochna tochna tochna tochna", sow uttering the wrong won will not b possible. The own Lie question is if eat will make communications easier ur harder.

As segnbora-t points out, this is all ready happening 2 peep elle 2 day. Being unable 2 fink about your problem, much less describe eat to others, virtually ensures you will be unable 2 solve eat.

Eye c a bright future for lo quality payed technical support.
