Tough to read isn’t it? That is an example of what is called SMS Language. When online or cellular texting services first came out, there was a limit to how many characters you could use. Therefore, many had to improvise what would be correct english of more than 200 characters, into improper english down to 140 or less. Standard English is the most widely accepted form of english by institutions such as schools and heads of state. With that being said, not all speak the same way. The concision of simplified english into SMS Language may be difficult to understand, but to many it’s the only way they can communicate properly with others. In this essay, SMS (which will stand for Simplified Mode of Speech) will be used as an umbrella term of the…

Texting not only hurts the victims of the cyberbullying, but also the victim. Because texting has become so popular, the user’s understanding of English is decreasing. This is because of the abbreviations like “jk”, “lol”, “rotfl”, “brb”, etc. People forget that they are writing and use these abbreviations; as a result, many professional documents go out with spelling errors or abbreviations.

Texting shortens and simplifies the English language while it degrades it as well. It is also a big distraction that makes people become irresponsible and lazy.

As a child, you never think what would happen if the time you spent with someone would be your last moments with them. When you said goodbye to that person, it was not supposed to be a permanent goodbye, but more like an “I will see you later.” Growing up as a child, I never thought about death or losing someone I cared about deeply. I thought that I would have that person in my life forever. Even as I got older I did not think much about death because it was hard to think about telling someone…

I started “Change the Channel” on August 25th and it ended on August 27th.

I was so use to calling certain people and texting certain people that I feel like this experience affected my life in a good way.
When my friends need help I am always the…
