Everything is short in the Short Land. People use short words when talking to each other or writing something or messaging there. For example, they write ‘hapy’ instead of ‘happy’. They write ‘runing’ instead of ‘running’ etc. In other words, if they find a letter consecutively in a word, they write it once.
