C. English and Vietnamese chat language comparison

I. Similarity

  • Chat language is principally used by teenagers.

  • Topics which chatters usually discuss are popular, repeated and social such as greetings, friends, family, love, work, study, etc.

  • Use emoticons to express emotion and thought. For example:

  • In Vietnamese: ###^^^ Mý ngày nay e hộx chẵng dc gì hít trơn á!... pài kiểm tra thỳ dưới trung bình hem hà!!! (;^_^;) nghỹ nại thý tức mình thiệt lun! :)… Kết wả nem hộx này e wóa iếu… Mẹc dầu e đã cố gắng hít sức cũn chẵng có lợi ích gì…:-( ))))88(((

  • In Enghlish: ###^^^ A boring day! Mayb I’ll fone 4 her. Wot are u doing now, baby? Look f’ward 2 c u soon. Omg, I need u now:( ))))88(((

  • Employ symbols on the keyboard effectively in order to send messages such as

  • (:()::)  sleepy

  • :’-)  scream

  • (()):**  embrace and kiss

  • !  I have a comment.

  • ?  I have a question.

  • Chatters attempt to reduce letters as much as they can do. For instance:

  • In Vietnamese: những  nhữg

  • In Enghlish: what  wat, think  tink

  • Have the same purposes:

  • Save time when communicating.

  • Avoid parental control.

  • Want to create a striking style.

  • Wish to show off their creativity.

  • Use code language to keep their activities private.
