  • Yes it is

    Well duh of course it is! It dumbs down spelling and grammar, reduces the need for in depth conversations and it distracts us from being fully present... So in my opinion it does. You can think what you want. Personally sometimes I will short words, like 'gonna' or 'convo'. But I neva rite lyk dis cuz it is dizguztin.

  • Why Yes It Is

    I do believe that texting is killing parts of the English language. As people use the short cuts to make words shorter and/or easier to spell they are forgeting the proper grammar and spelling they were taught in schools. I believe this could lead to major changes in the language over a period of time.

  • Texting is killing language

    There are many teens who use things like: brb lol jk. There are many teens who try to use them in papers in school. Frankly I believe if you are applying for a college and some have you right an essay if a teen uses text lingo they are mostly likely not going to get accepted.

  • Yes, I believe texting is killing language.

    I believe texting is killing language because texting shortens words and is greatly modifying the language. As an English instructor, I have found that the texting language is making its way into academic papers because it has become so second nature for many students. Grammar rules are forgotten with compulsive texters. I believe excessive testing will lead to poor communications skills.

  • Its not killing the language

    Languages change all the time and they evolve with the times, We are right now in a time like that and its historic and with smart phones it makes it easier to to use the full word instead of a short version of it. This article actually makes a great argument on it http://edumuch.com/grammar/the-joy-of-text/

  • Indeed It Is

    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/paul-jury/5-ways-texting-is-striker_b_657309.html

    We are at a halt in improving language because reading scores are not improving! As an acting teacher I am amazed by how many people cannot read or spell. All of this is simply because no one cares anymore! Texting I think is a main issue for this happening

  • Texting is a major problem

    I believe that texting has influenced are writing because it becomes a habit and usually habits are hard to brake and when you finally break it don't get back into the habit.My suggestion is to write your texts in complete sentences and to stop using incorrect grammar and i think it will improve your grade.

  • This is so obvious. Yes! It is killing our language!

    "Wuts ⬆️ Bruh im so ded rn ths iz dum bro😂" "Omg i look so ratchet rn it's not evn funy u hve no idea Like oml"
    Holy CRAP! Its like everyone I know says this stuff and it make no sense! People don't know the difference between "Its" and "It's or even "They're" and "there"

  • Hi hi hi

    Squirrel hi hi hi hi hi hi hi hi hi hi hi hi hi hi hi hi hi hi hi hi hi hi hi hi hi hi hi hi hi hi hi hi hi hi hi hi hi hi hi hi hi hi hi hi hi hi hi hi hi hi hi

  • Texting is killing grammar

    Being okay with writing shortcuts instead of talking and it's contagious. Spell check is dumbing down our ability to spell correctly when the program or computer does it for you. Plus, spell check doesn't always work correctly, so you can't really rely on it. Another problem is that it leads to speaking in shortcuts. This carries over in ELA classes for essays, etc.

  • Texting is not killing language.

    You still have to know how to structure a sentence or words so language is important. No, texting isn't killing language, but it IS making people lazy. Rather than talking to another person, we will text them. We carry on full conversations over a text and not talking on the phone. Pure lazy!

  • Open your mind.

    Quite honestly, the only people who believe that texting is killing language don't know much about language, are unnecessarily judgmental, or both. Nonstandard dialects are becoming recognized as valid forms of communication. Why shouldn't they be? What harm do they cause? In addition, a person using texting language is not necessarily a sign that they can't write in proper English when the situation calls for it. I cn write liek dis wen i snd a txt, but I also know how to follow the conventions of spelling and grammar. Why berate those who don't follow all of the rules in informal communication?

  • NO Just no

    In modern day society, teenagers are doing lots of text messages. It became their everyday thing in their life. I asked a question. What’s the point of doing text messages? Well, the students say that they should do text messages because, it provides them stronger friendship, Emotional relief and Improbal of language skills. If there are so many benefits of text messages, why should we ban text messages? In my opinion that text messages have a positive effect on teenagers.

  • The relationship between texting and students

    I asked a question. What’s the point of doing text messages?

If there are so many benefits of text messages, why should we ban text messages? I think that text messages have positive effect on teenagers.
    Texting has positive impact on teens because it can improve your language skills. Also, it is much more friendly way of learning new language skills rather than just sitting down on your ELA class and learning about new grammar rules. For example, Texting & Its Positive Impact on Teens claims, “...The fun associated with texting for young people contributes to greater literacy simply because it encourages teens to interact and engage with the written word.” This means that texting is a great way to learn new languages, because it helps kid interact with written word, which might be actually better than attending ELA class where you probably are not engaged at all.
    Some people say texting has negative impact on teenagers. They say texting decreases your language skills, because people don’t use correct grammar when using text messages, which might become a habit for people. Which might turn out that all their writing becomes text-message style. Which might be bad for teenagers. Their evidence is, children often use special type of register, which is called textese. This register allows the omission of words and the use of textisms: instances of non-standard written language such as 4ever (forever). (“Phillip Allen”) This means that they will make up those words, and ultimately lower their language skills.
    They say texting decreases your language skills, but it turns out that texting improves your language skills, because you learn new grammer, and you get a opportunity to write. My evidence is, “Civilization, then, is fine — people banging away on their smartphones are fluently using a code separate from the one they use in actual writing, and there is no evidence that texting is ruining composition skills.” (“Time”) Which means that there is no evidence that texting decreases your language skills. Instead, not texting might lower your language skills because you are losing your opportunity to write more. Also, texting encourages teens to engage with written words.
    In conclusion, texting messages have positive impact on teenagers. Let’s say that there is a teenager, who didn’t have any opportunity to that write that much. He only writes when there is an assignment, that is given out only one or twice per 2 months. Which means that for that much period of time, he doesn't write anything, and if the only thing that he is going to write are essays, he is going to be bored, and will not be able to engage with writing which means that it will ultimately lower his writing skills. However, if you text, you will be more engaged with written words, which means, texting has positive effect on teenagers.
