AbstractLanguage is also a behavior that depends on
age and environment. Keeping this fact in
mind, the present research investigated the
correlation between two socio-demographic
elements ---age and environment and
linguistic fluctuation. The findings
uncovered a huge relationship between
people's age and environment and their
stylistic features. Prominent differences
were spotted in the selection of words,
choice of parts of speech, grammar, concepts
and themes. It concludes that young people
tend to use slang, acronyms, internet
centred lively expressions in their language.
They are inclined to write about emotions,
desires and aspirations. Old aged people like
to use standardized diction, grammatically
correct sentences and solemn expressions.
They alienate themselves from social
activities and are rather nostalgic in their
themes and like to talk on wisdom. The
current study will also present a few
suggestions regarding language change
treated, particularly on the relation with
English language teaching and learning.
