I've noticed that there are some humorous poems about the English language abroad. For instance
this rather clever piece attributed,at least once, to a certain Dr Daniels:
Buzzing Around - Word Playz
When considering the recent phenomenon of text messaging on mobile devices, I'd noticed that
replacing letters with numbers is becoming commonplace. I've seen too that such practices are
spreading to Internet fora too. And, when challenged about the use of these writing methods, some
contributors maintain that it has become proper to write in this new style.
I happen not to believe that there is anything remotely proper about it! And accordingly I've
written a little ditty to that effect. I'm wondering now if my little verse has a general appeal,
or if it's restricted to a more private and personal expression of irritation?
Ode 2 Illiteracy
I gotta littel sekret
I'm tryin not 2 tell
Ain't good @ readin
+ don't rite 2 well
Wasnt good @ skool
Teacher m8 me quit
I went 2 her place
Covered it in sh*t
Nowe I'm on Opraa
I'm the latest kool
Coz if u cant reed
U gotta nowe u rule!!
That sort of writing is fine for chat, but I find it annoying on fora. Generally, we encourage people to write normal English here. However, we don't get that much of it, possibly because it is a language forum.
