The following videos featured on a TV Talk Show with Justin Long who is the guy who featured on the I’m a Mac ads. He displays a random text he received and the ensuing conversation over a few months….WOW.
What will be the end result of prolific texting on the way we write to each other?
To me it looks like written language, like many other areas, will become so individualised with each person’s own personalised way of communicating the written word.
How will this impact on our teaching and the student’s learning?
Here is a very interesting video I found after posting the above which is an interview with Prof. David Crystal who is one of the world’s leading linguistic experts. He talks about the myths and realities of Texts and Tweets.
