Is Texting Killing the English Language? | TIME.com | English | Scoop.it

Texting has long been bemoaned as the downfall of the written word, “penmanship for illiterates,” as one critic called it. To which the proper response is LOL. Texting properly isn’t writing at all—it’s actually more akin to spoken language. And it’s a “spoken” language that is getting richer and more complex by the year.

2. How do you believe that this new "language" will affect society into the future? What about as a global outlook?
