Grammer and typing on a computer
December 29, 2006 10:18am CST
Do you think grammer and spelling are becoming lost skills for those that spend a large amount of time typing on a computer or texting? There seem to now be abbreviations for everything these days. For example: LOL= laugh out loud, L8r = Later. Do you think these things impair people learning proper letter writing, speech, typing skills, spelling, and sentence formulation?

But is all change necessarily good? I feel that something is being lost when my niece writes me an email and mis-spells words because it is the "cool" thing to do. Also, what about preparing for the professional world where the written word is very important?

I think with the advent of the technology of SMSes in mobile the grammar and the purity of the english language has lost.And now it has spread its leg into the computer world..You can see many such abbreviattion in the chat room and in public discussions forums where they have turned and twist the language so much that it has nothing left to understand from it.
