Qwertycate

mrskellyscl

Created by: mrskellyscl

Pronunciation: kw3rti-cate

Sentence: Ashley, Meghan and Tiffany would qwertycate with each other for hours, even if they were sitting in the same room together, at the movies or in school. When they began to text instead of speak, their parents and teachers worried that they were losing the ability to express themselves in speech, except for an occasional "whatever" when questioned by an adult. Doctors are becoming concerned that qwertycation can become a powerful addiction with teenagers, young adults and those parents who have learned how to text by their kids who constantly hunt them down via the phone to ask stupid questions.

Etymology: qwerty: a computer keyboard. Named for the first six letters on the left hand of a standard English typewriting keyboard, it is the name adopted for miniature keyboards used in texting devices such as phones. + communicate: exchange ideas or information

Sentence: Byron had a communicaddiction and was never seen without being glued to a computer, blackberry ot other latest device to contact other humans. The main problem with this communicaddiction, was that Byron could not communicate verbally in person with other humans.
