Sms language and its impact

  2. 2. What is SMS language?<br />The abbreviations and slang most commonly used in phone text messaging.<br />also known as txtese, chatspeak, txt, txtspk, txtk, txto, texting language, txt lingo, SMSish, or txt talk)<br />
  3. 3. WORDS IN FULL ABBREVIATIONS OR SMS LANGUAGE <br />As far as I remember : AFAIR <br />Love : LUV <br />Thanks : THNX <br />Today : 2day <br />Before: B4 <br />Have a nice day : HAND <br />see you: C U <br />SWYP : : So what’s your problem? <br />At : @ <br />Tears in my eyes : TIME <br />Sealed with a kiss : SWAK <br />Keep it simple, stupid : KISS <br />Such a laugh : SAL <br />At a moment : ATM <br />Parents are watching: PAW <br />Random act of kindness : RAK <br />You’re on your own: YOYO <br />As soon as possible: ASAP <br />
  4. 4. Advantages of SMS Language<br />Saves the text space and money.<br />Saves the time.<br /> Easier to type.<br />Avoid the off topics.<br />Compresses the sentence.<br />Private chat (code language).<br />Smiley and emotions<br />
  5. 5. Disadvantages of SMS Language<br />Spoils spelling.<br />High chances of developing grammatical errors.<br />Communication misunderstanding.<br />Paucity of clearance of the sentence.<br />
  6. 6. Influences on languages and communication<br />SMS communication is used mainly in the private social environment. <br />offer an increased experience of psychosocial nearness between text author and text reader.<br />The adept use of these personalised language short forms is an indicator of group affiliation and a component of group identity. <br />The mass media label SMS communication as the secret code of the youth or as the big SMS action against long sentences <br />a text message might reflect this would be to combine features of a written medium with features of a spoken medium, but this combination is usually not intentional <br />
  7. 7. Influences on languages and communication<br />Emoticons, such as :- ( , :- ) and ;- ) are a representation of body language, which would otherwise be missing from non face-to-face communication.<br />in terms of its linguistic characteristics, stereotypical speech is interactive, and dependant on shared space, time, and background knowledge; stereotypical writing has the opposite characteristic.<br />SMS language conventions resemble speech in many of its prominent characteristics<br />
  8. 8. Conclusion<br />all though a message can be sent out by one person it is up to the receiver to judge that message drawing on their own intellect and social/ cultural experience in order to decipher it.<br />the total universe, past and present, is not subject to observation from any given observers position<br />The limits are set by social convention: the variation within them allows for the social and psychological differences between the users<br />As these mental variables are in-built into our psyche, our reactions to sign interpretations are not controlled.<br />
