URBAN “WORD” CAMOUFLAGE

There are many strange things in the world. Our native tongue is initially a gaming experience, no need mention to filosophy of language, on the contrary we only need a dictionary.

 

A number of years ago I was reading my dictionary and… what a surprise! I’ve seen the word “Coca-Cola” and the symbol (Tm) trade-mark beside it. I thought of a world which every word has a copyright, copyright holders, and so on.

 

Hence the world of communication is not too different from economics and the proliferation of slang is a way to skip out royalties on behalf of right-holders ancestry.

 

Seem strange about this?
