If you use a smartphone to send messages, you’re probably acquainted with some of the many acronyms and abbreviations that kids use for these messages. When this technology was brand new, it was tricky to enter letters into a cell phone because phones didn’t have keyboards; people used the standard phone keypad with letters assigned to each number to write a text message, which took a lot more time. For that reason, people started using a lot of abbreviations to write text messages. Even though full keyboards are now built into most phones, the practice of abbreviating phrases and words has stayed with us. If you’ve ever been confused about something you’ve seen in a text, brush up on your texting glossary with these helpful terms.
