Say it ain't so!.. The Chavs have gone and "dunnit" Some nutter named Professor John Sutherland , a Fellow of the Royal Society of literature, no less, has ' approved the translations '.. Seems the complete works of Shakespeare, among others, have been ' reduced' to Text Speak [ excuse me: Txt Spk ] as a - get this - " study aid " for students!!! FFS!!! The five acts of Hamlet, for instance, have been condensed to just over 1000 characters. As an example of what the good prof thinks is ' fantastic ' here's the ending to Jane Eyre: MADWYFSETS FYR2HAUS to quote the Teacher: "Was ever a climax better compressed?" I'm thinking that Prof. Sutherland should have something ' compressed '.
