About

The Catchphrase is a blog exploring the ways in which media, technology, pop culture, and related issues influence the way we use language and communicate.

From the printing press to Twitter, the language we use and the way we use it is always being shaped by advances in technology, changes in society, and the media that informs the world we live in. Those changes in language also shape us and our culture.

Whether it’s the latest slang, a piece of jargon, a television catchphrase, or a quote from that hilarious YouTube video, we’re always letting the language of the media and culture around us change the way we speak, write, and understand each other.
