you know what I find really interesting - is the use of the word "/" slash. Originated from typing, people have started to use it in speech and here it's been thought back into the spelt word. As language and thought process are so inextricably linked, (aside: see this massively interesting article about how deaf people think http://www.straightdope.com/columns/031226.html ) then it shows that our thought processes have changed fundamentally - demoting the importance of building a sentence nicely, and instead pulling adjectives together with slashes to describe things. It's like a tagging/search terms mentality.
