Please help me: start abbreviating your words

Grammar page from a dictionary

Random abbreviation of words is starting to grate on me nearly as much as the use of “going forward” and “opening a thought corridor”.

Breakie, acceptable. Fav, ok. Deffo – bearable if accompanied by a cheery countenance.

But inspiro? Presso? Indivs? Deccies? (Decisions, that is.)

It’s time to call a halt.

Which of course in the past has been regularly shown to be an utterly ineffective tactic in the face of language abuse. Or lang ab as it will shortly be known.

So we need a smarter tactic. Overuse leading to ridicule is is then.

Join me. Pointless abbreviate your words. Abbrev away and vict is ours. Obvs.
