      I think texting has its place , it’s just that it irks me when too much importance is placed on it .

      I used to think that it’s a terrible substitute for speaking to someone for instance .
      Looking at the history of texting , it was originally utilised as a method of communication for deaf people , and in order to communicate when mobile voice charging was more expensive than at present .

      But , having studied linguistics ( at pre university level ) , I really should acknowledge that forms of communication are ever evolving .

      It’s also the case that something may be more easily said via text , but a voice call also lends itself much better to the nuances in speech .

      The word text also strictly means , for instance , a book , essay or somesuch .

      I also don’t think it’s a good idea to text when you get home , rather than voice call , because anybody could be sending that text .
