The increasingly abbreviated language of texting might be souring kids’ longhand writing skills, according to a recent study. I am not LOLing.
Middle school students who frequently use shortcuts in their texts (eg. CU 2nite) performed worse on a basic test of grammar, the New Media & Society study reported.
Do you feel like your texting habits are infecting your writing or talking habits, or those of your kids? I’ll admit I love my abbreves, but everything has its place.
