  1. almost in message & in email, we have abruptly hurt the sense of English. We use acronym as well as short form of acronyms; We have ignore to write the perfect word, which hurt the meaning to the new person. Statical data are really make us to think to make correct of ourselves as we are at the edge where we may lose our actual english.

  2. Wow I really had no clue about this. I write and blog so I guess I am more at practice than some. I wonder if this is affecting my niece or nephew.

  3. I believe, texting in shorter language is important for saving time & efforts. However, just spicing up the spellings and grammar in wrong manner is not what I prefer.

  4. That’s a know fact, as people started to kill English with short hand languages. Truly speaking, many started to learn this short hand langguage, which is more frustrating to hear.
