Talking About Abbreviations Used Online

Li=Li Hong


Li: What are you doing tonight?

M: Chatting online.

Li: Again?

M: I really enjoy chatting with friends online. It’s such a

good way to communicate with each other.

Li: Yes, but I am confused when I come across some

abbreviations. I don’t know what they all mean.

Sample 1

Talking About Abbreviations Used Online

M: I can tell you some. If someone writes “4ever”, it

means “forever”, “BFN” means “bye for now”, “BS”

means “big smile”, “FTTB” means “for the time being”,

and so on.

Li: I see. How interesting! Now I can guess what these

abbreviations might mean.

M: I know quite a lot of these abbreviations. If you like,

I can tell you more.

Li: Yes, I will be grateful if you can tell me more.

Sample 1

Talking About Abbreviations Used Online

M: “CWYL” means “chat with you later”, “LTNS”

means “long time no see”, “IYSS” means “if you

say so”, “NOYB” means “None of your business”.

Li: Oh, really. I remember I ran once into “TTYL” while

chatting with somebody online. Let me have a guess.

Does it mean “talk to you later”?

M: That’s right. You are really smart.

Sample 2

new slang.

students, especially as students get access to

Internet and chat online.

meaning spiritual matter on campus or after

graduation. Here “G” implies “GRE” and “T” implies

New Slang Joins Internet Talk


L=Li Li

L: How interesting. Go on please.

P: From Internet influence comes “@ group” or “net worm”,

a way to describe Internet addicts.

L: That’s quite vivid.

P: “Goodbye” is usually put into “886” in the Chinese

pronunciation or “3166” as the Japanese Bye-bye.

L: I think this sort of slang also shows our attitude toward

society and how our lives are influenced by it.
