‘langwij’

texting

I am celebrating  World Poetry Day with language-themed poems.

Now for something light, here is the third poem, ‘langwij’ which was quoted in Txtng: the Gr8 Db8 by David Crystal.  Now, don’t go labeling me a language /grammar purist!  Though I prefer to text and tweet with very little txtspk.

from parence
by word of mouth
