Okay, so for obvious reasons, I understand that the general consensus on using TextSpeak is a resounding "NO." However, for an essay, I wanted to start it off with a snippet from a text conversation with my friends. Should I preserve the original conversation, complete with "yo", "wanna", "y'all" and "aight" or should I change the words so they are not TextSpeak. If the answer is the latter, should I still try to keep it informal as possible to preserve the feel of the conversation?3 replies
