In recent years,some new ways of using Chinese such as using lettered words and language-on-net which are quite different to the traditional Chinese system are very common in daily use.Are these language appearances normal or pathological? In the view of sociolinguistics,if they have been some kinds of language facts and in their own contexts,they are normal.Using lettered words belongs to language contact and the group using language-on-net recognizes a speech community.Facing language currents,we should be tolerant and let them be tested by practicing in a period of time.
