NOW HOW DO I WRITE THAT?


The President of the Spelling Society, John Wells the Emeritus Professor of Phonetics at University College, London, is reportedly calling for the English language’s strict rules of spelling and grammar to be relaxed. He favours greater freedom and believes that the English used in text messaging and e-mails is leading the way forward.

Ouch, no. I don't understand half of what's said in texts and emails that I get. I would hate for that to be the norm.

I say no way. Let's keep the two separate. Writing needs to be professional. English is hard enough for foreigners to understand. This would only make it harder.
