  Middle school teacher Julia Austin is noticing a new generation of errors creeping into(1) her pupils' essays.

  中学教师Julia Austin发现新型错误正悄悄潜入学生们的作文。

  Sure, they still commit the classic blunders(2) — like the commonly used "ain't." But an increasing number of Austin's eighth-graders also submit classwork containing "b4," "ur," "2" and "wata" — words that may confuse adults but are part of the teens' everyday lives.

  当然了,经典错误如“ain’t”依然没有被铲除。同时,Austin的八年级学生们的作文中还出现了“b4”,“ur”“2”和“wata”,这些词汇令大人们不解,却是十几岁年轻人日常生活的一部分。

  This "instant messaging-speak" or "IM-speak" emerged more than a decade ago. Used in e-mails and cell phone text messages, most teens are familiar with this tech talk and use it to flirt, plan dates and gossip.

  这种“即时消息式语言”或称“IM式语言”出现于十几年前,最初使用于电子邮件和手机短信,大多数年轻人深谙此道,用它们来调情、策划约会和八卦。

  But junior high and high school teachers nationwide say they see a troubling trend: The words have become so commonplace in children's social lives that the techno(3) spellings are finding their way into essays and other writing assignments.

  全国初高中教师说情况越来越麻烦:这些极具科技感的词汇在孩子们的社交生活中变得非常普遍,以至于很自然地跑进他们的作文或者其他写作作业中。  

  "The IM-speak is so prevalent(4) now," said Austin, a language arts teacher at Stonewall Jackson Middle School in Orlando. "I'm always having to instruct my students against using it."

  奥兰多Stonewall Jackson中学语言艺术教师Austin说:“现在,IM语言太普遍了。我一直教导学生们不使用它们。”

  Vicki A. Davis, a high school teacher at Westwood Schools in Ga., said she even finds the abbreviated(5) words in term papers.

  乔治亚州Westwood高校教师Vicki A. Davis说甚至在学期论文中出现缩略词。

  "I'm Southern, but I wouldn't use the sayings, "kick the bucket(6)," in formal writing (because) some people may not understand," Davis said. "IM-speak should be treated the same way."

  Davis说:“我是南方人,但不会在正式写作中使用kick the budket这样的话,因为有些人可能不明白。IM语言也一样。”

  Fourteen-year-old Brandi Concepcion, a pupil of Austin's, said wit, da and dat — used in place of with, the and that — sometimes creep into her homework.

  Austin的学生Brandi Concepcion,14岁,经常在作业中用wit,da,和dat代替with,the,that。

  "I write like that in the rough draft(7), but I try to catch the mistakes before I turn in the final draft," she said.

  她说:“打草稿时我喜欢这样写,定稿时我会尽力改正这些错误。”

  Some educators, like David Warlick, 54, of Raleigh, N.C., see the young burgeoning(8) band of instant messengers as a phenomenon that should be celebrated. Teachers should credit their students with inventing a new language ideal for communicating in a high-tech world, said Warlick, who has authored three books on technology in the classroom.

  有些教育家,例如来自北卡罗来纳54岁的David Warlick,认为即时语言使用团队日益庞大是值得庆祝的现象。Warlick说老师们应当鼓励学生发明了这种适应高科技世界的交流语言。他已经出版了三本有关课堂科技的书。

  And most avoid those pitfalls(9) once they enter college, said Larry Beason, director of freshman composition at the University of South Alabama in Ala.

  阿拉巴马州University of South Alabama新生作文指导员Larry Beason说,大多数中学生进入大学后会避免使用这些词汇。

  "Some of the same kids that I teach now were probably guilty of techno spellings in high school," Beason said. "But most students realize that they need to put their adolescent(10) spellings behind them by the time they get to college."

  Beason说:“这些孩子多少会为上中学时使用这些技术拼写感到不好意思。大多数学生进入大学后都能意识到应该放弃那些幼稚的拼写方式。”
