Author(s):

Abstract:

Mobile phone ownership and the use of text messaging have both increased rapidly worldwide in the space of decades, but the media continuously concerned that students’ literacy is being negatively affected by their use of text messaging language. Although a large number of researchers have tried to find out the relationship between students’ use of text messaging and formal writing performance, none of those can explain clearly about these effects. Since many people still complain about the bad effects of textism on doing tests, and academic writing… of students at different ages, the awareness of using textism in the right situations and to the right people becomes an essential requirement. The hypothesis suggests that the students are able to avoid textism use in exams despite media reports to the contrary. By using the questionnaire, the study makes an effort to explore three main problems: the trend of using textism among the freshmen, the students’ attitudes towards textism, and whether these students can be aware of using textism in the right contexts, and to the right person.
