i thought for a while that you were a Filipino, but upon checking your profile I was mistaken. It is because only the Filipinos have that ability to use and comprehend abbreviated words when it comes to texting. Everything is shortened to accommodate the number of characters required in a single text. It only costs around $.020 cents to send a message to anyone here in the Philippines. I bet you any Filipinos here in mylot could easily understand what you have just written in your post.

Yeah...except LOTS of people use some form of abbreviated text when in chat rooms online or texting between cell phones, etc., just like you describe Filipino's do. And, I'm sure you're right that many here at myLot can understand it. That's why it's so popular to use...as you said, it saves "characters" while texting. Thanks for the post.

if you can understand this, you are familiar with the new abbreviation spelling so common today. i am not sure i know how to use it myself, but i think it's just typing the minimum letters required to get the message across. know what i mean? what do you think? - i think i understood it. ha ha ha

Bravo, brandonmagsino!! Interpreted "word for word" as it should read. Well done! Others also understood it, but you're the only one (so far) who has retyped it in its "proper" spelling. Thanks for your post.

i can understand what u have written. but i object to use abbreviations because abbreviations make us handicapped in using the true and real spelling. i do not like to use abbreviations except some like dont instead of do not and else

Yep...I'm with you...but you used a few here, no? ("u" instead of "you") and you 'shortcut' on the capitalization and punctuation, too. Tsk! Tsk! lol Thanks for the post.

Well... I'm thinking you're joking, but I'm not real sure...anyway, it says "Can you understand this?", but written in the "shortcut" text we see in chat rooms, etc. so much today. Many people use this kind of "english" while texting with their cell phones, too. Thanks for the post.

I think you just did ah.. well a shortcut. It is a common thing here in the Philippines by means of texting. I think it can minimize the spelling capabilities of a child. Since I'm used to it, I can understand your writings there. But that writings you just have there, I think is not well accepted here in mylot for they ask for the word "quality" in here and abbreviations or any kind of shortcuts is not allowed but I guess this time it can be for it is the topic itself. I think, i love the way the English language is putted rather than doing or creating a shortcut for that because it just makes things hard he he!

Yeah...I don't use this normally at myLot, but as a topic, I thought it might be interesting to see what others had to say on it. Thanks for the post.
