When we were to define what we thought text was I wrote that it was a string of morphemes. I soon found this definition to be very limited. Once I thought of what it means I came up with the idea of this picture. I took this picture because it shows reminds the variety of meanings for the word TEXT and how much it has changed. We can see here text as in a passage in the bible, text as words, and the newest meaning of text as a message you send on your phone. It is very interesting to see how many different meanings this small word has taken on.
