The Latin word deformatio came to our language as deformation . Its about process and the consequence of deforming : make something stop having its natural or habitual form.
For example: "Telephony and social networks have caused a distortion of language", "To avoid deformation in the spine of the fetus, the mother must consume folic acid", “The fire generated the deformation of the structure of iron".
In some cases, deformation is a physical phenomenon . A body It can change shape or size when forces are applied. These deformations can be permanent or reversible.
A permanent deformation occurs when, once the load is removed, the body does not recover its original form. This happens if a car crashes into a column and its body is dented. In the reversible deformation instead, the body returns to its state original when the force that has deformed it is no longer applied: we can take an elastic with our hands and stretch it but, when released, it will return to its previous form.
The deformation can also be symbolic or abstract. Talk about professional deformation when a person He tends to observe reality according to the perspective of his profession. Faced with an increase in the unemployment rate, to name a case, an economist can focus on statistics, while a psychologist can emphasize the personal drama suffered by the one who has lost his job.
East phenomenon It is very common, especially among people very passionate about their work or vocation, and it can be fun if it happens outside their professional field. For it to be seen more clearly, it is necessary that the individual is surrounded by people who do not share their knowledge or interests, so that their comments seem even more unexpected and out of place.
The concept stems from the idea that the professional has suffered a distortion in the way he sees the world, because of the training he received to reach his current employment situation. In this case we must take into account both formal and individual study, in addition to the training that have offered you the companies for which you have worked.
Of course, the conversations that we have every working day with our coworkers do not help to get away from professional deformation, since among specialists of the same field they usually use a jargon, or make reference to very specific concepts outside of context .
The language deformation , on the other hand, refers to a change in the code used to communicate. This alteration can be produced, among other factors, by the technology : a person who communicates via text messages (SMS ) with your phone you can write expressions like "Grax x what you have done" (instead of "Thank you for what you have done") or "T see + late" (by "See you later").
Older people often criticize young people's way of speaking and writing, accusing them of using practically incomprehensible language and of committing all kinds of mistakes, such as being spelling and grammatical. While it is an almost natural part of our developing travel different paths to those of our ancestors, and this includes the imposition of new fashions, the deformation of language is a serious and absolutely unjustifiable problem.
The irrefutable proof that we are facing a harmful phenomenon is that it prevents communication both to those who provoke it and to those who must endure it. In addition to the use of abbreviations when writing text messages, the deformation of the language In Spanish it is characterized by excessive adoption of anglicisms.
