Past tense of “text”

  • January 10, 2016, 4:46pm

How about matching/comparing it with the word CAST. We don't say the director casted the movie, we say "He cast the movie". How about just saying "I text you, I will text you, I have text you" as in I have cast the movie/ I cast the movie (I'm being redundant).

Yes, it iS a quandary. At least its not has hideous as: "I aksed /AXED my mom what time it was". GEEZ! How can that poor word be butchered (axed) so badly- talk about lazy speak (oh-oh, I verbed a noun- eeeeee!). Is it an Ebonic thing, a south thing?A race thing?(can't be, lots of different races use that particular way of saying "ASK". Sigh....sooooo sad. Another one I've heard recently in the north east (NY) area is "Expecially" instead of especially - How the HAY does THAT happen? OUCH!

People that don't talk good are so laxidazy! - How's that one for ya?!!
