Chatspeak Reflection

Published by under Uncategorized

Narelle has made some really interesting comments in regard to how children speak in an informal context as opposed to a formal context. It is a really interesting development in recent years due to technology increasingly becoming more common place in society. I know that I have experienced it first hand by constantly shortening words even when I speak, such as lol, gtg, btw etc. However, I have no problem in switching to formal language and speech when it is needed. Therefore this reflects the code switching which Narelle talks about in her blog.
