Okay it took me 10 minutes but this is what Amrita said: hey, where were you in the shoot today?
At that email a student sent your prof, wow. There's just way too many things wrong with that one..well whatever you call it...because it's not a sentence.


Oh my! I would have never guessed that was what she was saying. Thank goodness she wasn't telling me this! LOL I actually have trouble reading lips too, so this text language can really go over my head sometimes! Wacko

Yes, everything is wrong with that question. LOL

This language is commonly referred to as 'SMS language' by most people. (I'm from India)

Most people use it because it saves them time. The question of 'which type of school they have studied in' does not come here. Many of my friends and cousins do the same, and they have all studied in reputed schools and have good English speaking skills.

People do not use this type of language in official work, exams and so on. They know they are not supposed to do it and it creates a bad, casual impression. Most people restrict such SMS conversation to casual chats only.

@Ekta: Just being in Mumbai doesn't mean that English is bound to be good. There are many schools in Mumbai which use the vernacular medium- Marathi. Also, in some schools, they teach English in schools but do not have a strict rule for speaking English on the campus.

FYI - The following is a grammar nazi rant. Directed at no one really - but I hope some SMS abusers read it and understand where others come from.

I think language curriculum in India needs to emphasize proper use of slang, SMS and vernacular language based on situation. Even in casual, friendly conversations or on FB, twitter you use non conventional language only when there is an implicit agreement to use that form of language.

In general it is considered disrespectful, inconsiderate and boorish to assume that all casual friends/fans are OK with that language and will understand/accept it. It probably is snotty of me, but as an avid reader and writer, language and communication is valuable to me - I'm actually offended when people communicate with me in that language.

Over here in the states Black people speak Ebonics amongst themselves and those who understand it. However, if i have a black friend or acquaintance they will speak to me in regular language until I imply that I am comfortable with Ebonics.

I'm don't mind broken English due to language barriers. I studied in India and many vernacular students don't have the best English education. However, they make a very honest attempt to communicate. I see Hispanics, Asians and other immigrants in the state make an honest struggle to learn a language, to communicate and be understood. Then to turn around and see educated people who can fluently know and speak a language is heartbreaking...almost offensive to me.

Moreover nowadays with full QWERTY boards on phones, SWYPE technology etc...there is no need for shortcuts. Just learn good old fashioned typing skills. How come Japanese schoolgirls can type perfect English on their cell phones without even looking at the screen?

@RTH:

I agree with you. I myself do not advocate use of SMS or shortcut language. I personally find this SMS language confusing, it is something on which I have never been able to get a good grip myself, no matter how 'simple' people claim it to be.

What's worse is that after a time a person sort of gets used to writing in this manner- and then it becomes difficult to 'get it out of your system'- you know what I mean?? Some of my friends are so used to this SMS language that even during letter writing or while writing in a hurry they end up using words like 'shud' instead of 'should' and 'w8' instead of 'wait'. Then they cut it out and correct themselves.

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

i didn't read ur post or any other posts here
