  1. Thanks so much for alerting me to this video by David Crystal. I will encourage the future teachers in my courses to listen to it. It was interesting to know that the supposed paragraph that had circulated in “textese” was a hoax. I wish David had mentioned where it originated. I’m quite curious.
