It’s bad enough when exams have to cater to horrific spellers due to their SMS-based vocabulary, but we’re doing everything we can to make ourselves believe this latest report simply isn’t true. Reportedly, a social analyst in Australia somehow believes that the wide range in spellings in a few popular names is due in large part to the fact that we spend way too much time as a whole conjugating and hyphenating in order to get text-based messages across. Said analyst was even quoted as saying that “the use of a ‘y’ instead of an ‘i’ has hit epidemic proportions, as has the use of ‘k’ over ‘c’.” Realistically, we’re not about to believe the SMS craze is actually affecting children’s names en masse, but please, do your next born a favor and give him / her the vowels they deserve.
