Abstract
Communication technologies have generated a new form of literacy which puts the standard of writing among technology adopters at stake. Short Message Service (SMS) language is one example which dissipates the concern for maintaining a certain level of standard in written communication. In the present study, 80 e-mails and SMSes from university students were analyzed. To visualize how the adoption of SMS language affects writing among its adopters, analyses were made on the semantic and syntactic aspects of the e-mails. Traces of impact of SMS on the standard of writing among the participants were also examined from several other aspects. The findings suggest that the degree of unacquainted use of SMS language in writing among university students might reach a deplorable state if no eye is kept on it.
