1. What are some of the particular features of texting that Crystal identifies? Are they still relevant? There are several features of texting that Crystal addresses in this chapter. The spelling of texts is new and different. Children’s ability to capitalize correctly, punctuate and spell will decline. Children’s schoolwork will suffer because they will assign texting customs to the classroom which result in a decrease in exam scores. The upcoming texting generation will not be able to articulate proper English, thus causing the whole language to deteriorate. While there has never been any clear evidence to support the above concerns, I feel the older generations are not convinced texting is not determinantal to the younger generations.
