Kemasukan unsur-unsur bahasa rojak, slanga dan pembentukan perkataan baharu yang menyalahi hukum tatabahasa dalam tulisan dan lisan di media sosial membawa kepada kerancuan bahasa. Ini menjadi cabaran yang perlu ditangani bagi memartabatkan Bahasa Melayu dalam masyarakat.

Oleh itu, suatu gencatan bahasa rancu perlu dilakukan yang mana setiap pihak yang terlibat perlu hentikan perkara ini sebelum terlambat.
