Ralph Fiennes Hates Twitter, Is Kinda Right

Ralph Fiennes, honored at the BFI London Film Festival awards for his directorial debut -- the Shakespeare adaptation Coriolanus -- does not think in sound bites of 140 words or less. 'We're in a world of truncated sentences, soundbites and Twitter... [Language] is being eroded -- it's changing. Our expressiveness and our ease with some words is being diluted so that the sentence with more than one clause is a problem for us, and the word of more than two syllables is a problem for us." So hey, kids -- go see Coriolanus next January and expand your (five syllables!) vo-ca-bu-la-ry! [Daily Mail]
