    Yep

    From Wikipedia:

    "The phrase hear him, hear him! was used in Parliament from late in the 17th century, and was reduced to hear! or hear, hear! by the late 18th century."

    I have a text speak one. Obviously text speak is frustrating at the best of times, but this particular shortening irks me.

    UR for your. I think, unless you are shortening you're, it should be YR.

    This reminds me of how I hate it when people write "yer" instead of "yes". Erm... how is that quicker? Or if you simply must use some kind of slang, couldn't you write "yeah" or "yeh"?

    Honestly, who actually says "yer"?
