What’s Really, Really Old is New Again?
Electronic devices extending off of the use of the internet has changed people's lives and how we communicate electronically with each other. Blogs, interest groups (Facebook, Twitter and Flicker), instant messaging and texting have grown in popularity. With English language being the neutral language used in these media types we are finding many new expressions and abbreviations appearing based on the English language. All of these new words and abbreviations have formed a new language- "texting language" (TL). This new language contains several different components such as expression, text and abbreviations.
