I knew 4ever apart from these.
When I chat my friends I prefer short words. It's easy. I am too lazy to write all the words so abbrevations are very useful.

hi petrichorr,
i also think the sameeee, I think that write with abbrevations is easlier and for example if u r @ an important event you can't write a big text. sooo I prefer 2 write with abberevations.

I think the same as u. When u use that style it takes less time 2 write messages and young people can communicate more easily. Many people look 4 ways 2 write in a short way and thx to this , they already have it.

Bcoz= Because
Coz=cause
B4=Before
W8= Wait
ASAP= As soon as possible

I prefer short form when I have conversation with my friends. It's easy to write and it can reduce time .

I know other words like gfs = girlfriends, or 0_0 = I'm serious, lol. Text message style is very common and it is usefully.

1. What other words do you know in text message style?
Great= gr8

2. Do you prefer writing in text message style or in full?
I prefer text message style because it is faster but we have to remember it is not used in formal communication.

I do not know in text message style.
I prefer text message full, because it is easier to understand.

I do not usually use short words in a chat, but when I use them, the ones I use most are u2, 4ever, in an English chat.
In a chat in Spanish, I abbreviated the short words, for example I put "q" instead of putting "que" and so, but only when I'm in a hurry.
