What do you mean people can't spell anymore?


Reuters reports "An English essay written by a teenager in text messaging short-hand has reignited concern among teachers that literacy standards are under threat."

"My smmr hols wr CWOT. B4, we used 2go2 NY 2C my bro, his GF & thr 3 :- kids FTF. ILNY, it's a gr8 plc."

Wow. I couldn't even read that!

For what needs a teeny correct spelling. Much mor important is the cost effective communication via SMS...

And therefore this is great!! :)
"2go2 NY 2C my bro" LOL - to go to New York to see my brother... Thats great, sorry, gr8!!

Nice compression method to get around the 160 character SMS limit ;-)
