“The advent of cellular phones has undoubtedly revolutionized the communication process to a large extent, adding to that the burgeoning social media sites also changed the way one used to communicate,” said Justin Goh. I think teen texting is not affecting literacy in  a bad way. Teen texting is a good thing because then they get to talk to their friends and family. Teen texting could result in a bad way by cyberbullying. Cyberbullying is very bad and could lead to suicide and so could regular bullying.Bullying is bad for anyone because bullying can make someone harm themselves and maybe others. They could harm themselves very bad it could lead to suicide and that could make family and friends very upset. Even people they don’t know it could effect because some people have a sensitive heart. Bullying could lead to depression and depression can get very hard and it is very hard to overcome.”Texting has become an everyday task that many teenagers engage in on a day to day basis. Many of those text messages that are sent often contain textisms. The use of textisms is starting to become more accepted among the younger generation. There have been suggestions from both media sources and educators that texting may have a negative effect on the literacy skills of students. Perhaps that biggest problem is that students do not distinguish between times when they need to write formally without using textisms, and when they are writing informally and the use of textisms is acceptable. With more long term studies on the same group of individuals, it may be possible for researchers to determine if the use of textisms does indeed have negative effects on literacy,” said Ashley Campbell. “Many people are against texting as they believe that excessive texting weakens the mental ability of teenagers by making them commit mistakes in spellings and grammar,” said Justin Goh.When sending text messages on their mobile phone to friends, children often use a special type of register, which is called textese. This register allows the omission of words and the use of textisms: instances of non-standard written language such as 4ever (forever). Previous studies have shown that textese has a positive effect on children’s literacy abilities. In addition, it is possible that children’s grammar system is affected by textese as well, as grammar rules are often transgressed in this register. Therefore, the main aim of this study was to investigate whether the use of textese influences children’s grammar performance, and whether this effect is specific to grammar or language in general. Additionally, studies have not yet investigated the influence of textese on children’s cognitive abilities. Consequently, the secondary aim of this study was to find out whether textese affects children’s executive functions. To investigate this, 55 children between 10 and 13 years old were tested on a receptive vocabulary and grammar performance (sentence repetition) task and various tasks measuring executive functioning.”We can all agree that technology is here to stay. Barring an apocalypse that sends us back to the Stone Age, our dependency on our devices will only increase in the upcoming years. Each year brings exciting and innovative advances in technology that makes all of our lives much easier and more connected. However, the shocking surge in texting among teens is a legitimate cause for concern when analyzing their school work. It won’t take you long to see texting grammar used in messages from your children or even in social media posts. But what about their school work?,” said Armchaired.com
