“Middle school teacher Julia Austin is noticing a new generation of errors creeping into her pupils’ essays. Sure, they still commit the classic blunders — like the commonly used “ain’t.” But an increasing number of Austin’s eighth-graders also submit classwork containing ‘b4,’ ‘ur,’ ‘2′ and ‘wata’ — words that may confuse adults but are part of the teens’ everyday lives.”
Geez. That’s pretty bad. I can’t imagine having turned schoolwork in like that in high school…or even junior high school for that matter.
Look at this:
“Fourteen-year-old Brandi Concepcion, a pupil of Austin’s, said wit, da and dat — used in place of with, the and that — sometimes creep into her homework.”
