Corruption or bastardisation refer to the idea that language change constitutes a degradation in the quality of a language, especially when the change originates historically from human error or prescriptively discouraged usage. Descriptive linguistics typically does not support this concept, since from a scientific point of view such changes are neither good nor bad.

  • Verbastering is in de taalkunde het verschijnsel dat een woord in de loop van de tijd sterk van vorm verandert, bijvoorbeeld omdat de eigenlijke betekenis in de vergetelheid is geraakt. Dit verschijnsel begint meestal al dan niet bewust in de gesproken taal en breidt zich gaandeweg uit naar de geschreven taal.

  • Corruptela é a deformação de palavras, originada pela má compreensão/audição ou rápida visualização (gerando baixa memorização gramatical dela; algo como assimilar o significado de uma palavra sem prestar muita atenção a sua "casca gráfica", ou seja, no modo como ela é materializada em caracteres) e posterior reprodução, ou ainda de forma proposital, como forma de eufemismo para uma expressão considerada inapropriada ou de baixo calão.

  • Corruption or bastardisation refer to the idea that language change constitutes a degradation in the quality of a language, especially when the change originates historically from human error or prescriptively discouraged usage. Descriptive linguistics typically does not support this concept, since from a scientific point of view such changes are neither good nor bad. Words are commonly said to be "corrupted" or "bastardized" if they undergo a change in spelling or pronunciation when borrowed from one language to another (e.g. "Cajun" [from "Acadian"]). This example illustrates that normal phonological developments (in this case, palatalization of /dj/ to /dʒ/) can be labeled by some as "corruption", a position which demands that any language change from a previous state be thus labeled. In this view, English would be a "corruption" of Proto-Germanic, the Romance languages would be "corruptions" of Latin, and Latin would ultimately be a "corruption" of Proto-Indo-European. Language corruption may refer to a change in words, as described above, or to a deviation from the so-called "purity" of standard language. For example, the split infinitive has long been disputed as either a corruption or norm of the English language, even though the concept of the English infinitive containing the preposition "to" is challenged by usage with modals (can, shall, must, etc.) which precludes employing to. A language (or a certain variety of it) can also come to be regarded as having become "corrupted" if it has acquired a large vocabulary from other languages. This terminology is highly frowned upon by most academic linguists, as the adoption of loan words is a normal process which has no effect on the functionality of the language. Labeling a language as "corrupted" is a subjective value judgement which often leads to linguistic discrimination. Text bastardisation refers to an unrelated process, namely the alteration and publication of a text in a way inconsistent with the original purpose or the author's intention. In cases which involve the removal of allegedly "inappropriate" content from a work, this is also known as bowdlerization.

De certa forma comum na língua portuguesa, muitos vocábulos e palavras formaram-se a partir de corruptelas, como por exemplo, o pronome você, originado por várias corruptelas de "vossa mercê". (vossa mercê, vosmercê, vosmicê, vonce e finalmente você).
