Is Texting A New Language?
OMG! I’m LMBO! For those of us who learned to type before this whole texting craze began, the new terminology can be a bit daunting. Is LOL Laughing Out Loud? Or is it Lots Of Love? Well, that one sometimes depends upon the context to decipher. But one thing is for sure, texting is changing the way many of us write. And therein lies the question of whether this change is good, benign, or bad. I have from time to time had to CALL the person texting me just to understand what TTYOTA meant (Talk To You Off The Air), but I can usually figure things out. With a bit of help from Dr. Google. Here’s an interesting story from MyWay.com that delves a little more deeply into the way that technology is changing the English language. Be it for the better, or the worse.
