Orthographe et SMS

Abstract : More and more children, and especially teenagers lay out a mobile phone. They use mainly SMS to communicate. In student copies, spelling errors appear as abbreviations ("r" for are). Moreover, the use of new technologies (instant messaging, SMS) is often put in question in a possible unknowledge of spelling. This assertion is particularly conveyed by the media and some teachers. However, linguists are more moderate although research on this issue on are very rare. From this observation, I communicate a questionnaire to college teachers to see if the analysis of students copies would be relevant to answer my questions: SMS have a real influence on the spelling errors? It is important in the elementary school? Should we consider the "SMS" language as a new code? Then I conducted an experiment developed by Celine Bouillaud with CM2 students, 5th and 3rd in order to validate or not my assumptions arising out of my problem: How to use the "SMS" language it at a influence on their spelling skills?
