The Art of Language is dead?

Diane Mermigas: On Media » Blog Archive » Youth Speaks: If u dk what this is, gl

Diane Mermigas has written her concerns following the results of new report from the Pew Internet & American Life Project. According to the report, of the 700 teens ages 12 to 17 surveyed by Pew, 85% said they engage in some form of electronic personal communications, including text messaging, sending emails and instant messages, blogging and posting comments on social networking sites. Sixty percent of those teens said they do not consider any such electronic texting to be the same as “writing,” yet 50% said they use many of the same text abbreviations and emoticons in their written school assignments and even in spoken conversations.

Is the art of language a dying form or just evolving....time will tell
