Media: AP: Messaging language
There's a feature from AP (Feb 13, 2003) entitled "Linguists Are Mixed
About Text Messages", by Melissa Trujillo. It begins:
MILWAUKEE (AP) - The text messages on Margarete Stettner's cell phone
are filled with shortcuts - "G2G" for "got to go" and "LOL" instead of
"laugh out loud." The 13-year-old sometimes even slips into text-messaging
lingo in her homework.
The URL is:
but it may expire soon, in which case the story may be locatable with a
key word search over Google.
