3,000 per month. Texting: Short cutting or skipping words

LOL {laugh out loud} or {SOZ} for 'sorry'. More likely to text than call Text messaging Less talking, communicating through texting. Ways to Improve: 2.3 trillion messages this year! Good or Bad? Teachers Linguists Good Bad - a whole new language! David Crystal Teachers: Destroys Language Children/teens lose their ability. Linguists: The Gr8 Db8 Experiment/Study Results Better communicators My thoughts: Keep on texting!
