>This thread was split from this one. Only one question per thread, please.< I was under the impression that "to text" or "texting" was only used when describing SMS, or possibly instant messaging, such as MSN messenger or ICQ. Can it also be used to describe an email or a letter? Offtopic: Can I use "an email or letter" even though it technically is "an email" and "a letter"?
