PostSubject: Internet Slang Guide   Wed Apr 22, 2009 5:12 pm

Do you have problems understanding the bloggers and youtube comments?

'lol i was rofl.' Is an example. Internet slang is a sub-language, if you will. But it can be mastered very easily, and can come in handy for those hurried text messages. However, it can be frowned upon for being various reasons, one being an account of laziness. But you can't go through the Internet without finding several examples of IS. Not only will we go over the basics of Internet slang, but we will go over various popular phrases that you could find on the Internet.

Let's go over what Internet slang means.
Like a Star @ heaven Abbreviated phrases or acronyms
Like a Star @ heaven Made up words that gained in popularity and are now being found in respectable dictionaries.

For example. People may say 'talk to you later' a lot. But if you'd noticed, you could lose the use of your fingers typing that all every single time. So, instead, people came up with the phrase ttyl, an acronym equal to

Some act as a shortcut to get the message across without exhausting your thumbs, but some act as codes to use inappropiate or hurtful phrases. Another example of a sometimes frowned upon use of Internet slang is P.O.S or translated, Parents Over Shoulder. This signifies that what you are doing on the computer is something you don't want your parents to see, but you don't exactly want to say "Hey! My parents are behind me! Don't continue the conversation for just a second!"

Your parents could probably figure that out. But POS is short, sweet, and it won't get you in trouble.

Exclamation I advise you don't use this phrase however. If it's something you can't show your parents, then you really shouldn't be doing it. But it's YOUR decision.

Here is a funny one: pcrs. This one translates simply as
Parents Can Read Slang.
Tough luck for you!

You can create your own slang, but some phrases won't make sense. Only say things that would be common. Don't just randomly say you are going to eat alligator meat in a boat in slang.

If you are fluent in the Slang language, please add whatever you think would be nessacary to know in the harsh world of the Internet. And remember...
