When you are limited in words, you are limited in thoughts. A broad vocabulary helps cognitive processes by modulating ideas. Labeling and definition adds ports and leads to complex thoughts, making them easier to combine, disassemble, reassemble, and understand.
This is precisely why I am frustrated by shorthand in text and oral forms, beyond contractions and titular acronyms. They consolidate and compress ideas into more basic forms.
It’s like when you compress a file. You lose information, and the data begins to break down. It’s not as robust or complete as the original.
If it continues, we will lose our lushness of feeling, or at least the ability to express it with understanding and insight, and we will lose the nuances that define complex emotion.
