In this exhilarating and often hilarious book, David Crystal examines why we devote so much time and energy to language games, how professionals make a career of them, and how young children instinctively take to them. Crystal makes a simple argument-that since playing with language is so natural, a natural way to learn language is to play with it-while he discusses puns, crosswords, lipograms, comic alphabets, rhymes, funny voices taken from dialect and popular culture, limericks, anagrams, scat singing, and much more

Txtng : the Gr8 Db8 by David Crystal( Book )

12 editions published between 2008 and 2011 in English and held by 46 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"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. Exam answers using textese and reports that examiners find them acceptable have led to headlines in the tabloids and leaders in the qualities." "David Crystal 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 concludes that far from hindering literacy, texting may even turn out to help it."--Jacket
