How Language Divides Cultures And People

How to sum this up in one easy sentence?

If you don't have a common basis for communication with another person you'll not be able to find the common ground you share and, thus, further share your cultures and societies.

There's no excuse for this in a modern world of translators and such.

Spelling

Okay, naturally, languages evolve and move as time dictates. However, I detest the language of text messages. Someone kept saying "thx" instead of "thanks" to me the other day. That really annoying me.

Just stop being lazy.
