Spoken language is spoken more formally and has correct grammar compared to text language where people use more slang and talk lazily.

Spoken             Text

Whaddre you doin       WUD


I believe that our spoken language is spoken more formally compared to text language. Texting has more slang and ‘lazy talk’ such as ‘wud, lol and hbu’ compared to talking to someone face to face, you wouldn’t say that.


Texting is a language developed since cellphones were born to reduce the amount of characters used and also so the person who you are texting can recieve the text faster. A whole new language has been born which has included few letters to make words IE Wud, what are you doing?
