Summary/Abstract: Abundant use of language fasion elements violates the language norm, since the majority of fasinable elements are now used in their non-standard meanings or are meaningless. The elements of language fasion also violate the norms of rhetoric and shades of meaning. They also diminish the expression of one's individuality.
