Txting is killing language. JK!!!


Welcome to another Tuesday with TED. Today we have linguist John McWhorter who claims “Txting is killing language. JK!!!”

Does texting mean the death of good writing skills? John posits that there’s much more to texting — linguistically and culturally — than it seems, and it’s all good news.

Did this change how you view texting? Or writing?

But more importantly, am I the only one who still uses LOL to mean “laugh out loud?” I feel so old.

Until next time,
Cynthia Patton
