Good morning everyone!
You have surely come across some kids using this type of language, especially on Facebook, isn’t it? It consists of using lowercase + uppercase letters, as well as numbers and all types of characters just to make the sentences look…
stupid nice (in their opinion). Each of them invent their own words, their own way of writing to their friends. And most of the time, they write nonsense.
I totally hate how these teenagers interact among themselves. In fact, I have the impression that many people (from my generation) share the same view about this “trendy” way of communication among the much younger generation.
Anyway, does talking like that makes them look “cool”?Â But you might perhaps say :Â What about the older generation (our parents for instance) who hated our sms lingo too.
Unlike the SMS language/lingo which aims at reducing the number of characters in a sms, I don’t think that the newer teenagers’ typo has any meaningful use. Or unless I have not grasped its use yet.
I might sound a bit old-school, but some of these kids totally write nonsense and I still don’t understand why they get so excited when someone tags them in some stupid picture. (and off-topic : some of their emo-style haircuts make me want to vomit!)
