Nenagh Kemp of University of Tasmaniathe evolution of "textese" is inherently coupled to a strong grasp of grammar and phonetics.
The findings are summarized in his book Txtng: In his book, Crystal argues that: In a typical text message, words are not abbreviated as frequently as widely thought Abbreviating has been in use for a long time, and thus is not a novel phenomenon only found in SMS language.
Furthermore, some words such as " sonar " and " laser " that are accepted as standard words in the dictionary are originally acronyms. Both children and adults use SMS language, so if adults do not display the errors seen in children's written work, they cannot be attributed to SMS language alone.
Use of abbreviations in written work and examinations is not that prevalent among students. A prerequisite to using SMS language is the knowledge of spelling, so use of SMS language does not necessarily imply low literacy.
He further observes that this is by no means a cause for bad spelling, where in fact, texting may lead to an improvement in the literacy of the user. A study of the written work of students by Freudenberg found that the actual amount of use of SMS language found in the written work was not very significant.
Some features of SMS language such as the use of emoticons was not observed in any of the written work by the students.
Of all the errors found, quite a substantial amount cannot be attributed to use of SMS language. These included errors that have already appeared even before the advent of SMS language. With proper instruction, students should be able to distinguish between slang, SMS language and correct English and use them in their appropriate contexts.
The author cites ambiguity as one problem posed, illustrating with examples such as "lol", which may either be interpreted to mean "laughing out loud", "lots of love", and "little old lady" depending on the context in which it is being used. Ambiguous words and statements have always been present within languages.
In English for example, the word "duck" can have more than one meaning. It could be referring to either the bird or the action, and such words are usually disambiguated by looking at the context in which it was written.
Opponents of SMS language feel that it undermines the properties of the English language that have lasted throughout its long history.
Furthermore, words within the SMS language that are very similar to their English-language counterparts can be confused by young users as the actual English spelling and can therefore increase the prevalence of spelling mistakes.
SMS language is thus thought to be the "secret code of the youth" by some. Women's messages tend to be "longer" Women used more "complex structure" and grammar Men's messages tend to comprise "one-sentence", "one-clause" or "one-thought" constructions the latter is markedly observable among male users within the ages 16 to 19 More greetings and words of parting were observed in women's messages Women had messages with emotional and practical e.
Women and the younger users across gender tend to use more shortened forms and emoticons than men per se While women observed conventional rules more than men, the difference is marginal.The best place to get walkthroughs, strategy guides, and FAQs for The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim for the PC.
