    When asking for help, it is best not to use texting abbreviations. Please use English.

    I've been to school = I have been to school
    I'ld like to go home = I would/should like to go home
    I'm fed up = I am fed up

    See: Simple Present - Short Forms
    Long forms, Contracted forms (Short forms)

    I couldn't have answered your post - I can't tell what is text messaging, and where you need help with your English expression!

    Re: pls help me...!!

    I apologize .It will not happen again.I just joined this site yesterday and I was not aware of rules and regulations.

    Dear Moderator,my main purpose of joining this site is to get help as much as i could.

    Therefore,i asked questions that i should know.My purpose of asking could(be,have,have been),should(be,have,have been) and would(be,have, and have been) was not that where to use these words but i was asking that in which sentences or you can say in what sense i should use these sentences and how to use this?

    and asking about short forms ,actually i asked this because i was facing problems while listening to someone who is really tough to understand.i found this site when i was searching for short forms (main purpose) but when i reached here ,i had queries which i thought to putforward infront of senoirs and teachers can be better rather than trying hard to get my self.

    i'll be pleasure to you if you provide me any link or if you give me your own teaching it will be much better.!

    thank you very much for responding and apolgize for any possible spelling mistake

    Well, we will do what we can to help.

    With reference to should and could, try looking at this first and see if it helps at all: Conditionals - Glossary Definition - UsingEnglish.com

    There are some tests on conditionals you can then try to see if you have understood: English Language Tests - UsingEnglish.com

    If I understand your other query, it is about the kind of slurring of words and phrases you hear in spoken English [gonna = going to; wanna = want to]. I am not at all sure that there is a definitive list. Maybe others will have an idea about that.

    Maybe you could ask those who you hear saying things like this what they mean?
