Children's unorthodox spelling and grammar while texting does not stop them learning the rules of formal English, suggests research.
Just over 160 children, aged between eight and 16, from the West Midlands, took part in the snapshot study.
The researchers compared spelling and grammar in formal tests and in text messages, at the start of the project and again after a year.
