Text Language: Just Pondering

When was the last time you wrote someone a letter and send it through air mail? Probably, nine or ten years ago. But whatever the case, the fact is times have changed and communications technology advanced so fast that we are maybe in for a rut. Barely five years ago when a new breed of mobile phone surfaced and took dethroned the non-camera phones from the display shelf. New mobile phone accessories and new cell phone cases have emerged. New language. Yep, new language.
We never saw language evolved in so radical ways that it appalled language purists and enthralled most language experts at the same time. In so many ways we see how languages around the world have been modified to fit the cellular method of communication. Basically, almost all people who ever owned a mobile phone have refrained from the use of written language conventions and either copied or come up with their own style of writing text messages.
Whether we are on the brink of language extinction or the evolution of a new one, we'll just have to wait and see, won't we?
