“ U cmin?” Honestly, the first time I saw this I was confused but I realized after that that the only way to decipher such text codes is to try to read them aloud…it dosent always work though.. Try this :
“c ya tmrw, tc “
I was in seventh grade when I was exposed to such a phrase and I spent the night trying to figure out what my best friend could mean…
I wanted to crack my head with a hammer when I finally figured it out.
Take. Care. Thats what she had meant.
Soon enough, I got used to such connonations…its not that hard really. But if youre a purist, youre gonna have a tough time bearing with all of the ridiculous English around you. Its not just where I stay, its all over the world..people have forgotten how to write in fulls in texts, emails and chats!
At rare occasions in the past, I was asked to forward some material to my teachers through email. After typing the text, I would read it once and then erase it all out..because, sometimes my English is just barbaric
“Mam, pls find atchd doc. Ive alrdi fwdd to clas id. Thnq”
I am strongly against it but I just find myself going with the flow! Its crazy and I try to stop myself when I have enough time to type the entire spelling out. At times though, I find it impossible.
Lets hope they dont re-issue another dictionary soon…
C ya l8r! 😉
