With my text conversation, I found the use of abbreviations to be very common as well as the use of initialisation. We use these as an efficient way of texting and it helps us when we want to write quickly. In addition, we use exaggerated words we wouldn’t usually use to talk normally, we use sarcasm as a way of a joke or as cuss word we don’t really mean.
We use acronyms to express our expressions when we can’t physically show them. So in text we use acronyms such as ‘Lol’ which means ‘laugh out loud’. Also the use of abbreviations such as ‘gonna’ which stands for ‘going to’ makes the receipent know the emotion within the word.
