This is very surprising to me, because I had thought that "txt msg" language was corrupting how kids use the written word. The article states:

Researchers say text language uses word play and requires an awareness of how sounds relate to written English.
That makes a lot of sense, actually. I will be very interested to find out if this continues past age 12.

I am not buying it. I think that it is going to make writing worse as the kids get older. Yeah it may help younger children use word association but I think as they get into high school spelling skills will go way down.

Spell Pupils Helps Texting

This is something I've been interested in since posting about it a year ago. I have since come to disbelieve the original idea of texting helping kids in some way to spell better. It's not true, and this last news article is right on. I take college classes with kids right out of high school, and it's very disheartening how many of them can't string a proper sentence together. Even some more mature students use texting lingo simply because it's simpler and faster. I recently read a facebook debate between a couple of middle school kids where one was bemoaning the fact that texting slang is working it's way into spoken coversations: his friends actually say things like "jk" (for just kidding) and "l.o.l." (instead of laughing). The other kid was advocating texting slang and abbreviations as the normal evolutionary course of the English language, saying that no one speaks English like Shakespeare anymore. It's definitely going to change how communication goes forward -- and not for the better.

I agree with you very much Farseer. I think that the written word is getting more and more obsolete. I think that kids no longer know how to spell and they are not even learning how to write in elementary. Everyone just prints now.
