If you are a computer owner, you probably have once or twice ventured into a chat room or two. Have you noticed that there appears to be a lingo that is strictly observed? Chat definitions have become so cumbersome, that entire websites are devoted to them. When reading the chat between some participants, it almost looks like a foreign language with all the abbreviations, and seemingly inane strings of letters that are put together.
While a direct translation at time does not work, knowing some of the more common chat definitions will help you to participate a lot easier in some of the chat rooms and it will also cut down on your frustration as you are trying to make a point, and all you get back in return is a what appears to be a bunch of gibberish.
Here are the most common chat definitions:
- AAMOF stands for â€œas a matter of factâ€
- BBIB is the abbreviation for â€œbe back in a bitâ€
- CRB means â€œcome right backâ€
- Da is actually a piece of Internet slang, which stands for â€œtheâ€
- EOT denotes that somebody is done discussing something, because it signals the â€œend of topicâ€
- FWIW stands for â€œfor what itâ€™s worthâ€ and is often used as a filler
- G2G actually has two meanings; depending on contact it either means â€œgood to goâ€ or â€œgot to goâ€
- H&K means â€œhugs and kissesâ€ and is for those interactions that are a bit friendlier than simply arguing politics or other issues
