I hate texting and think it is ruining our language.
Miss Self-Important, knowing this, graciously gave me Txtng: The Gr8 Db8.
I've only started reading it, but the appendix contains texting abbreviations in eleven foreign languages. Not surprisingly, the French seem to have the most. They love acronyms. "koi29" for "quoi de neuf" made me laugh. At least it's not only English heading for the toilet.
Full review of the book to follow.
