Texting Has Spoilt GrammarIam an indian and obviously English isnt my mothertongue. But somehow i have always had a passion for English. I spoke better than my peers and also wrote with lesser flaws.No wonder,i became an english teacher after doing my degrees.It pains me to see that writing in wrong grammar is considered cool these days. The main culprit is texting via the mobile phone. I must admit that i too use shorter forms of all words during texting but saneness prevails over me in other situations. Students have started using texting language in their examination papers ,here and there."what" is written as wat.."yes" is written as S .The list is endless. A fifth grader is able to write better english than a high school kid.

Can you believe that we had a student who wrote like this in his exam?
