WRITING IN THE XXIst CENTURY: MOBILE MADNESS TEXT-MESSAGING

 (6th Cultural Week-1: Writing in the 21st century)


OMG = oh, my God                                               NSFW = not suitable for work
AKA = as known as                                              THANX = thanks

Below there are links to a game to practice and play with text messages in English and also other websites which deal with this way of writing or a glossaries of possible acronyms to be used.
