Its not just celebs either..I've seen plenty of fans type like this.
lol the only celeb ive come across tht writes proper English is Salman LOL pheww im glad about tht
 
and i swear usually people from india are the ones who write lyk dis

Does he? Good for him!  I don't follow any of the DID stars/judges on FB so I have no idea..whatever news I get is from this forum or any articles on them LOL

True..I have noticed that. My cousins type like that..it drives me nuts. I used to be forum-language stupid..it used to take me 20 mins to decipher...now I'm much faster LOL

I follow on Rahul on twitter..he's funny, classy and he writes well too Embarrassed
i know right ... lol ... my cousins in india write like tht too ... its so irritating to waste ur time trying to figure out the hieroglyphic

My cousins write that that too, and it's sooo annoying! I just reply them saying to talk to me properly because I cannot understand their broken English, and I seriously can't. It takes me 20 minutes to understand the gist of it!

Jai,

I admire your dance and versatility. I'll give your dance precedence over other personality concerns. However, I do hope this FB account that these updates keep getting posted from is a BS fake account. If that is your account, I hope you just have some dumb shizzle assistant.

If there is one thing I cannot stand in this world is that kind of language and vocabulary. If you want to communicate, communicate in coherent sentences using proper words, spelling and punctuation. If not duct tape your trap, or rather in this case your digits.

You are making me really torn between the language police and love of dance.

- RTH

Siddhesh,

Please don't cum. Not in old getup, not in new get up. Not on Zee, not on Star. This is a family forum and those are family channels.

Again language police. Whatever happened to proper communication.

- RTH

Haha, RTH you legend!LOL
The grammar nazi in me awakens whenever I read such messages. Whether that be on IF or on FB.

I'm not surprised though. People who do not know how to differentiate between 'surprise' and 'suprise' and 'their/they're/there' are awarded 95% in their English CBSE board exams so it comes as no surprise that people continue to spell like that.

You'd think so wouldn't you?

You'd be surprised at the amount of high school kids that talk like that on MSN. I've instructed all my younger cousins to talk to me in proper english or else they'll look back in life and regret itLOL

A lot of it comes down to education too. Lots of these celebs haven't studied in an English Medium school whereas Salman studied in UAE and I'm guessing in an Indian International School where speaking English is very common. If you notice people like Harsha Bhogle who is highly educated and has studied in one of the top colleges in India, he speaks even better English than I do.

I know a lot of people who write lyk dis...and trust me, I have tried asking them the reason for it and apparently, it "saves time" LOL 
plus frequently I responses like "its cumin thru wat i mean so no need 2 write ful sentnce" and all I am left to say is "go back to myspace" LOL

In India, a lot of people don't have that good of a typing ability, so they have to look down at the keyboard to find the letters so they just chose to eat away as many letters as they can to save time and energy LOL 
this so reminds me of my old days when I was in India and used to "typ3 lyk dis" Ouch just comes across as stupid ...

To be honest it's usually just a phase people go through. I'd be surprised if they actually wrote like that while filling in their job applications. It does frustrate me to see people at uni still typing like that though. How old do you have to get before you grow out of it?

Most people on IF, including you and me have studied at a school/college where English is the main language, these guys aren't really used to the language as much so I can't really blame them. It doesn't explain why they choose to use slang and all sorts of strange abbreviations but like they say, old habits die hard.

People who used to 'tYpE lYk dis...!!!!!!!!!' some 3 years ago now have no problem forming a proper english sentence!Smile

I find it irritating when people use that text language when writing e-mails to their professors. One good example is what one my friend who is a teaching assistant to a professor showed me:

wherda tests @?

That's exactly what the student wrote to the professor. No joke. Isn't that just appalling? He didn't even address the professor or anything. Why would you write like that to your professor?
