Can texting and text language be considered a new and global language for future communication?
McWhorter makes the case that text language is a new development in our linguistic knowledge, skills and understanding. Just as many languages were born from a shift in the usage and style of Latin, so too could be said of this new shift of English.
Can text be considered a growing language and should it be studied and utilized as a way of global communication as (if my knowledge is correct and feel free to disprove me) much of the language is internationally recoginzed? Where can we start classifying this as the birth of a new language?
