Here is the opening paragraph of David Crystal’s essay, “2b or Not 2b”:
Last year, in a newspaper article headed “Ih8 txt msgs. How texting is wrecking our language,” John Humphrys argued that texters are “vandals who are […] destroying [our language]; pillaging our punctuation; savaging our sentences; raping our vocabulary. And they must be stopped”
Q1. How does Crystal utilize John Humphrys’ claim in his essay?
Q2. Do you agree with Humphrys’ argument?
