  Lesson #1 - Word Shortening

 

The objective of this lesson is to understand the use of shorter forms of words for the actual words.

     -     A short form is usually a letter that can be accounted or represented for a word.

      -    For instance, the letters y, r and u are short forms for why, are and you                         respectively

-         Short forms enable a person to communicate faster

-         They provide an efficient means to communicate

-         In the present generation short forms provide a means to communicate while multitasking

-         As our generation is chatting with people on the computer using IMs and also SMS messaging in cell phones.

-         For the short forms they can be used by the way they sound and also by replacing them with single letters.

-         Examples:-
l8 - Late, 4 For, y why, r - are, u you.
