A world shaped by abbreviations commonly known as Text Language has begun to think more and more in acronyms than in full sentences.
As once upon a time, acronyms and abbreviations played a role in shorthand. There was also the word reference that was used in shorthand. “REF” is commonly used in the military.
Some texts intentionally misspell words. Tonight is 2nite, which is even spelled wrongly. Alternatively, we can just type NITE for night.
I think that texting has a lot of benefits, including giving one time to think about an word and considering all the possible responses and keeping one from losing a friend, job, or yes, even a spouse. Today, reading “I’m sorry” in a text message means so much to the reader, that it’s almost like they’re reading it as if it were something they wanted to hear. This is the secret to texting, and what makes it so powerful.
Whenever someone sends a serious text, the recipient may be able to interpret it in such a way that his or her apology or excuse sounds just right to them, as they are reading it in their own tone. It is important to remember this. As if you were writing a book, and the reader is making it work.
By knowing popular acronyms and coming up with new ones to impress your friends, you can abbreviate your way to a better life. For example, to know what does ion mean in texting. It refers to term “I don’t know” while chatting.
For all sorts of scenarios, there are plenty of examples. Texting will become more popular and abbreviations will become more common. The days of correctly spelling words are indeed numbered, but with every technological development come some hardship. Hopefully, the English language (and all languages) won’t lose its value as a means of communication.
