"Text shorthand"

February 4, 2010 - Mike Donahey
I've been texting my daughters and wife more as of late. And I'll admit the feature does come in handy.
Like many, I have my own text messaging shorthand.
For experienced texters, I suspect some of what I have used in messages and displayed below is pedestrian. Others,who are experimenting with their own shorthand may learn from it. Here is a sample:

2 – to or too
2morrw–tomorrow
4–for
B–be
B4-before
bel-bell
ben–been
belz-bells
chk–check, as in the financial instrument or to check on
cloz–clothes
doz–does
erund–errand
groc–groceries
gr8-great
hlp–help
mak–make
mony-money
R–are
repliz–replies
rdy–ready
urn–earn
thx–thank you
womn–woman
yur–your

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