    Nowadays, it has become very common for people to communicate with each other via various offline or online platforms often by using short and basic text messages. Some people opine this will eventually cause the death of grammar and spelling. I completely agree with this opinion because short messages are being used universally and habitually on an everyday basis. The reason will be further discussed and elaborated on in this essay.

    Firstly, the usage of the grammatically incorrect short message is not restricted to a particular place. People all over the world are comfortable using these abbreviated messages while chatting. In addition, this problem is not limited to a language. Many local languages are also getting affected. There are many words in English, for example, good morning and good night are always used in short forms which are not standard abbreviations. Therefore, when a majority starts using the wrong vocabulary subsequently the correct spelling or grammar will vanish in the future.

    Secondly, when people use these grammatically incorrect words continuously there is a high chance that people will forget the original spelling. Although, these short messages are grammatically incorrect they covey the correct meaning in the conversations. Hence, it has become more convenient for everyone to use them quite often. Moreover, those who do not have the proper knowledge of the English language are bound to learn wrong spellings and grammar.

    To conclude, worldwide people are obsessed with these short text messages and they often use them in their daily interactions. Therefore, this may end up resulting in the demise of spelling and grammar.

    The given statement clearly states that communication through text messaging and other instant forms of online communication are small and basic way.This has lead some people to think that it is not being used in proper format causing the death of grammar and spellings. According to me, this has got both merits and demerits. In upcoming paragraphs I shall elaborate my opinion on positive side and negative side as well.

    To start with, the positive side of Online communication is time saving and comfortable way of approach. Nowadays, internet has become global means of communication in our everyday lives and on top it technology also added together and this has made made online platform popular and much easier way to perform communication.This has connected people from all corners of the world together.The main positive aspect is it is time effective and cost effective. For example, during our busy schedule usually we do not have leisure time to travel for long distance to meet our close ones. Hence, during this time we can do online conversation via texting and video calls, attending conference’s right away without much efforts.This will ultimately makes our life simpler by saving lot of time.Recently usage of online platform has became very important during lockdown situation where almost every profession has used online platform for basic and official communication.

    On other side, there are few reasons which shows that online conversation has negative sides. People started communicating using online platform in much easier way by making the conversation too simple, small and very basic type.In this aspect they forgot to think of language significance, grammar, spellings and many more standard rules. Thus communication via online and text messaging has made people to forgot exact format of English and standard way of making sentences. In future this will cause damage to

    To conclude, I fell like online communication represent both the positive and negative aspects. Because, on one side, this becomes source cost and time effective, on other side language is getting screwed in many ways.

    Nowadays, due to advance development of technologies and innovation we can communicate via different messaging platforms like WhatsApp, FB Messenger and so on.Since, the conversation through this platform are mostly colloquial, it has shorten up our communication.While, some people think these online connective applications have spoiled the grammar and spelling of the language. Even though its quite true to some extend but I totally disagree with this because these platforms have improved our connectivity and reduces the time of formal messaging.In the follow paragraphs, we shall discuss on how these platforms helps us in day to day life.

    To begin with, these modern medium of communications is helping us in reaching out to anyone in and around the glob instanctly and also it gives us the freedom of shorten up the message and also saves time in concentrating more on the topic instead of the language and grammar accuracy.In fact, this medium is influencing lot of non native speakers to communicating in their unfamiliar languages more comfortably and helps them in understanding the medium even better.For Example, recent times students who are learning new languages are communicating with their mentors and others using these online texting tools, this help them in gaining confidence and also improves in understanding the language even further.

    However, there are some draw backs in using these texting platform which one or the other ways has some effect on formal communication. But these are subjective to the individuals, while on the broader scale these platforms helps everyone to interact instantly and complete removes the barriers of communication;Therefore, these advance medium of texting helps us to interact with everyone in more simple and elegant way.For Example, People suffering from medical condition can communicate with doctors instantly to get quick remedies and solutions for the problem.

    In summary, these new way of texting is a boon to the 21st century irrespective of some draw backs it has.Hence, these platform helps us in improving our communication and saves signification amount of time on daily basis

    The social media is one of the most common ways of communication and knowing anything and everything around the world these days, and it is growing rapidly. It changes and affects each person in a different way. Some may argue that the usage of text messaging and other online platforms will be the death of grammer and spelling. I completely disagree with the opinion . Basically social media is the new way of keep in touch with people. Following paragraph contains the opinion in detail.

    To begin with , most of the text messaging applications come with a limit on number of letters which makes the users focus only on the key message rather than on the correctness in grammer and spelling. For example some social media platforms have very limited letters in the message. In such situations no one can canvey their detailes in message to other people . Similarly text messages also have limitations in number of message after reaches it charges for per message . And this process takes so much time in texting, users focus only on the importent points, so that user keep it short. Mostly such instants forms of communication used by youngsters also aldults for their personal use so oftenly some conversation needs shortsforms and it is best informal way to use it.

    Morover, Formal communication expect grammar and vocablury. For an illustration, in schools and college students are mandatory to use formal language to read and write. Another example , in business communicates such as emailes and meetings use proper language and are refrained to use short and basic form. News paper and books also use formal language and this make grammer and spelling strong .

    In colclusion, using sentences without proper grammer and short forms in personal use is a necessity and if it comes to professtional followed proper grammatical and spellings hence it need not be considered to be a threat to the language.

    In this digital era, technology has become an essential part of human beings because people chat together instantly through social media applications such as WhatsApp, Facebook, Instagram and short message service, so, pessimist claim that quick transmission will cause the vanish of language’s fundamental. I partly disagree with this statement. In the forthcoming paragraphs, I shall discussion the reasons with examples.

    First of all, language is main source of communication between the communicator, so it plays a vital role for everyone. As each sector of business and government never make deal without the letter or email, because it is one kind of proof which is required to get agree between the parties, and everyone follow the same for last long years. In addition, many applications and software already in the market which is useful to correct the mistakes. Gramaly application is one the best example for correct human mistakes with suggestions.

    At the other hand, from the begging of the study, there are lots of courses introduced in the curriculum which provide the understanding from profound, so students have learned from the schools and they adopt a way to use the words in writing. i.e., nowadays parents prefer to get admission of their child at early age in which they learn the primary syntax so they will not face the issues later stage.

    To conclude, each person on the earth have to write formally on the workplace in which have to mentioned with properly, in addition, students have taken written examination, so no one can skip the structure and thereby, it never be passed from the globe.
