When writing something (eg letter, email, forums, notes, etc), do you wright it the exact way you would say it as if you were talking face-to-face with some one? Or do you word it differently for some reason?

Of course not. I capitalize all my "I"s in real life, not to mention using proper punctuation in real life.

I Definitely do not write how I speak, I think most people that paid attention in English class do not, because obviously to get the marks you're going to want to type in detailed description using more uncommon words which can trigger the right set of emotions, which is something that is not generally used in a conversation with speech because the inflection of the speech does that without resorting to those more complex uncommon words, unless you want to sound like an uppity academic, conversely, typing how I spoke would give the impression of a one toothed farmer who uses the slang of todays generation y.

Personally I feel as though it is an abhorrent mistake, an eyesore, I was simply changing the "f" into an "F" and look what happened. In 12 months perhaps i'll revert back, or perhaps i'll be dead, haha.

Does this include accents?

 

If so, being Scottish, you people would have an extremely, extremely tough time understanding my writings.

Maybe I can be somewhat more intelligent when I type, and a bit calmer in the case of frustrating situations.

In real life I'm quiet (can't speak up for the life of me) and don't like to be considered in decisions; with family and close friends I like to joke and goof around through most of my conversations, and I feel incredibly shallow for it all the time; and online I like to try to add to the conversation, even if I don't have much to add.

 

Probably has something to do with mood.

If I wrote like I talked I'd use a ton more ellipses and hyphens(then I normally do 'round here)...oh and curse way more too.

I believe there is a level of conversational typing that is and has been evolving over the past bunch of years.

On the internet I have time to google sh*t and make sure I'm not making an ass of myself when I'm arguing with someone.

In real life however, I either tell them to shut the f*ck up or ramble on incoherently and pretend to sound like I know what I'm talking about.

Nope. I have a hard time putting what i'm thinking into text than into actual words for some reason. It makes sense when it comes out of my mouth, but on paper/cpu screen, it looks like sh*t.

No, when I type I usually think out what i'm about to say. When I talk I just say things I shouldn't and offend everyone. It isn't intentional though.

I sometimes try to speak like I type, but it never happens. I st-t-t-tutter like Porky f*cking Pig when I talk to anyone. On the internet I can type as if I have half my brain cells.

I'm don't type exactly like how a speak. I Elaborate my when I type. I do usually speak as bluntly as I do here when something or somebody annoys me. Not rage, but you know.

Initially yes.  But when typing I can re read what I've typed and correct it and make it better.  Not much you can do when you talk sh*t.

Most Indians that you'll come across are much better at written English than spoken. I'm no different. Our phonetics are all messed up because schools here emphasize more on grammar than pronunciation. I'm sure more than half the people in my country will have trouble breaking up words into syllables, but they'll be pretty darn good when it comes to putting pen to paper.

In Quebec's English classes in school, we're encouraged to write as we speak, as we're evaluated on the contracted form of words. For example, I've got a better score on a text I wrote the way I talk than when I wrote without any contracted form. So yeah, I write the way I speak.

I curse like a sailor and I'd rather not let that spill over into writing when it's not warranted. I also impersonate caricatures and people from time to time and that never translates well onto the computer screen.

I use very similar words and the proper way of using them when I speak them as I do write them.

 

So in a way I do, but  not precisely. :ph34r: :ph34r:

Nah, when I write online I tend to use ''American'' terms, rather than the Irish slang I use in real life.

My English grammar isn't good when I write (maybe you've noticed), but I suck even more to speak. I have a slight lisp, and I can't really notice it when I speak Norwegian (my second language), but it really f*cks up my English. 

 

I usually have a very slight Norwegian accent when I speak.

Not even close. I once emailed someone and they thought I was white. They were surprised to see that I look and sound like a straight up hoodlum

I type like I think. This probably explains why I'm a clumsy writer.

 

Edit: Exhibit A, is it "type" or "write"? Goddammit, told you I was clumsy.
