Description du produit

Revue de presse

Crystal's combination of enthusiasm and erudition is persuasive. I'm a convert. Txting is gr8! (Brandon Robshaw, The Independent On Sunday)

A jolly meditation, helped by the enthusiasm of a linguist revelling in newly coined lingo. (Tom Lamont, The Observer)

Présentation de l'éditeur

This book takes a long hard look at the text-messaging phenomenon and its effects on literacy, language, and society. Young people who seem to spend much of their time texting sometimes appear unable or unwilling to write much else. Media outrage has ensued. "It is bleak, bald, sad shorthand," writes a commentator in the UK Guardian. "It masks dyslexia, poor spelling, and mental laziness." Exam answers using textese and reports that examiners find them acceptable
have led to headlines in the tabloids and leaders in the qualities.

Do young people text as much as people think? Do adults? Does texting spell the end of literacy? Is there a panic in the media? David Crystal looks at the evidence. He investigates how texting began and who uses it, why and what for. He shows how to interpret its mix of pictograms, logograms, abbreviations, symbols, and wordplay, and how it works in different languages. He explores the ways similar devices have been used in different eras and discovers that the texting system of conveying
sounds and meaning goes back a long way, all the way in fact to the origins of writing - and he concludes that far from hindering literacy, texting may turn out to help it.

I am one of those people who never got into the whole texting craze, primarily because I hardly ever use my cell phone and I rarely chat with my friends online. Even when I do, I try to write in full sentences and be as clear in my prose as possible. However, I am not beyond ever condescending to the new texting abbreviations, and would occasionally pepper my chats with LOL, ROTFL, and of course ', nor would I begrudge my interlocutors when they do the same. So, I am not someone who gets too flustered with texting as such. It's texting that happens in inappropriate settings that really gets to me. I like to interact with people in various online forums, and when they write whole essays in txt-speak, and I find myself spending more time decoding what they wrote than on the content of their arguments, then I take an exception to this whole business of texting.

I am writing all this in order to give you my overall perspective on texting prior to reading this book. My attitude could be summed up as ambivalent to weary. So I decided to pick up this book and learn more about texting from a professional linguist, someone who has invested a great deal of time to study texting habits and put it in a perspective of language use and development in general. And for the most part, David Crystal does a wonderful job at that. The book is filled with nice and illuminating examples, the parallels to previous changes in our use of language were appropriate and thought provoking. The book does a great job in convincing me that there is really nothing either deviant or inappropriate about how texting came to be. And I was also convinced that people who txt are not ruining the English language nor are they hurting their own writing skills.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great Reading 8 janvier 2013
Par Grandma - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
This book is easy, enjoyable reading. I loved it! It described me to the T. I could relate it to it at a very personal level. I resisted texting, in fact I was dead set against it, but now I don't see how I got along without it!
David Crystal takes us through the steps of how we resist change, especially language change. Texting has gotten a bad rap, when in fact it is a different way of communicating. We can't even say it is new, but rather different.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 UNDERSTANDING TEXTING TO AN AMZED 82 YEAR OLD! 3 novembre 2011
Par David L. Van Meter - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
When a 80 year old lady said that in order to keep in contact with her, I at 82 had to learn to text on my cell phone. So I looked for a book about texting on Amazon and what did I get? Txting The gr8 db8, by David Crystal. I wont say I got all the answers I wanted, but it did help some with the crazy shortcuts! There is nothing like motivation by a beautiful woman to spur a male into the mysteries of texting! However, I found that just answering inviting texts from a lady are the best motivation. If you want the history of texting get this book!

This is a clear, funny and informative book about the text messaging phenomenon. Crystal deals in facts rather than prejudices, and provides an accessible guide to what is really known about texting and its educational impact. The parts I found most interesting were the details on how texting works in languages other than English. The most important is probably the concluding chapter making the case that with good teaching, far from reducing literacy, texting is actually likely to cause school students to do more writing, reflect more on how they write, and become generally more able to use language in appropriate and flexible ways. Before writing yet
another scare story about texting, journalists and educators should read this book.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Nice to have a sane voice in the debate 29 mai 2009
Par Gary M. Olson - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
David Crystal, an extensively published linguist, has written a sane, balanced account of the txtng phenomenon. He cites data, both contemporary and historical, to place txtng in a realistic context. His linguistic sophistication and extensive knowledge of language enables him to provide an insightful analysis. I am so glad he has brought his expert perspective to this most fascinating activity.
