Education, politics, and anything else that catches my attention.
That's just stupid. I type in standard English all the time, even in IMs and text messages. I think they can manage it for an exam.
R they nuts? Lmfao!!!!
I think you meant "nutz".
Sometimes my students do this - mostly on homework where it seems like they are trying to finish it at the last minute - and reading it makes my head hurt.It is a "language" with which I am unfamiliar and so it requires extra decoding steps on my part (it reminds me of that old William Steig book, "CDB"). I don't see why the grader should have to go through the frustration of having to decode a simplified and unstandard form of English just to make it easy on students. I shudder to think that maybe 30 years hence, textspeak WILL be standard English...
