Text code

June 16, 2014 - Mike Donahey

I've been using the text feature on my cell phone more lately.

And, I'll admit the feature does come in handy.

Like many, I have my own text messaging code.

For experienced texters, I suspect some of what I have used, and displayed below is pedestrian.

Others,who are experimenting with their own shorthand, may learn from it. Here are samples: 2 – to or too, 2mrrw–tomorrow 4–for, B–be, B4-before, awtg-awaiting, belz-bells, ben–been, chk–check, as in the financial instrument or to check on, cloz–clothes, doz–does, erund–errand, groc.–groceries, gr8-great, $/mony-money, r–are, replz–replies, rdy–ready, urn–earn, thx–thank you, womn–woman and yur–your.

I'd be interested in receiving text shorthand suggestions from readers to find out what I have been missing.

Awtg yur replz,
