Question about Grammar Answered
I've noticed a lot lately, people using their internet grammar (not just here), and then defending it when they get criticized for it by saying something along the lines of, "wat r u a teacher?" or, "idc im not n scool rite now." So I have two questions about it, one for our adult members who grew up before the internet, and one for our current youth members.
For the adults:
Did kids tend to use proper grammar outside of school as you were growing up, or did they use the same sort of excuses for poor spelling and grammar? I guess this applies mostly to letters and notes to each other.
For the youth:
Do your peers use the same abbreviations in written communication outside of school as they do online or in text messages? Also, how predominately to you see internet speak used around you, compared to those who use proper grammar and spelling?
Thanks! I look forward to any input you have on the topic.
