I'm embarking on a linguistic comparison of the actual texts of IMs and
SMSs, especially among high school and college students.  Is anyone doing
analysis of this sort? I'll be working with Rich Ling (at Telenor), who
has been analyzing Norwegian SMSs, but I'm wondering if anyone else has
actual IM or SMS corpora they have been looking at linguistically (or that
could be used for that purpose).
