    Default Texting Survey

    So I have to do a survey on texting for a controlled assesment in GCSE English. I would very much appreciate if you could answer. Here are the questions

    Gender?
    Age range?

    1. How many times a day, on average, do you text?
    2. Who do you text? (eg. freinds, family, collegeus)
    3. Why do you text them? (socialization, formal invitations ect.)
    4. In your opinion, do you use texting too much?
    5. Do you text in shorthand? ('text speak')
    6. (Most important question) List the shorthand (text speak) terms you use the most eg. LOL, u, 2, ect.

    Thanks for answering

    I'd gladly participate in this study, though i'm not sure the mods will looks so kindly upon it >.>

    Male

    1-3
    Locations,times other laborious details.
    Socialization, though mainly informative reasons.
    NO i realistically barely ever text.
    yes
    i ( instead of "I") no (instead of (know) wat (what) , though generally if i'm in lazy mood i wont bother with the spell check but my phone does have one, so i often corrects alot of my lazy grammar.

    1. 15
    2. Girlfriend, Mum, Friends.
    3. Girlfriend - to talk, Mum - to sort things out like what she wants me to make for tea, or if she can pick me up from somewhere, friends - usually to arrange to meet up.
    4. No, I only really use it as a necessity, I prefer meeting and talking, or talking on the phone.
    5. I used to about 6 years ago, but recently I've got quite proper, especially with punctuation and stuff.
    6. ect, haha (not sure if you'd count that) 'cause (instead of because) owt / nowt (anything / nothing, though that's more colloquialism than shorthand)

    I don't know if I'm a good subject for this survey; I have practically no social life because I'm a dweeb, but here goes anyway:

    Gender: Male
    Age: 22
    1. Oh... about 3 or 4 I guess.
    2. Not too many people. Mainly a couple friends and my mother.
    3. I dunno, various reasons. Chatting, asking a quick question, responding to their texts, etc.
    4. No. In fact I think I under-use it for someone in my age group.
    5. I do in text messages, but nowhere else.
    6. Mostly just the common ones: Lol, fyi, shortening "you" to "u" and "to/too" to "2", skipping apostrophes (im, cant, dont) I don't use many though; I don't think I've ever said brb, used "c" for "see" or anything like that. The things I listed are pretty much the extent of it. I spell out most words though I don't always pay attention to punctuation while texting.

    1. Roughly 70-90 a day, because everyone's too far away from me qq

    2. Friends mainly. Hardly ever anyone else.

    3. Because I live too far away from most everyone I know, so it's the only way I can talk to them.

    4. Maybe a little, but I feel I have reason enough for it.

    5. Nope. Never.

    6. xD, , qq, and the very occasional lol.
