Text abbreviations, text slang, internet acronyms, SMS language, emoji, and emoticons! Digital conversing is extremely common in today’s world, as a human species we are always looking for ways to simplify things in order to save some extra time and make it easier for everyone to understand. This is seen largely in digital conversing. Minimizing the number of letters required to make a word or creating a completely different word that is significantly smaller than the original keeping the same meaning, as well as, using icons to express something without actually having to type it out.

We’ve all done or at least experienced this while digitally talking to someone, however, if you find that you’re not fully educated in what seems to be the new way of communicating, don’t worry because you’re definitely not alone. Here we will be discussing everything you need to know about text abbreviations, slang, and SMS language, so you might want to stick around!

Text Acronyms / Texting Abbreviations

What does “SMH” mean? OFC, ROFL, SMS, LMK & More!

A standard text that you receive on your mobile phone usually looks like a weird mixture of letters and words that seem to make no sense at all. This is because many common and frequent phrases are shortened into an abbreviation, thus saving time for the sender and sometimes confusing the receiver.

Texting abbreviations (text abbreviations), texting acronyms, or internet acronyms are the abbreviated language and slang words commonly used with mobile phone text messaging, email, and instant messaging (online chat applications such as Messenger from Facebook, Instagram, Twitter…).

What Are Text Abbreviations?

As you may already know, an abbreviation is a shortened version of something. In this case, it’s a shortened version of a piece of text. The abbreviation is made to be simpler, while still representing the original meaning of the text. There are two types of abbreviations, formal and informal. If you struggle to find the difference between the two, here is a little tip: formal abbreviations always end with a full-stop as it’s a requirement, whilst informal abbreviations do not.

Here are some examples of formal and informal abbreviations:

Formal abbreviations include:

  • Lib. (library)
  • Abbr. (abbreviation)
  • Approx. (approximately)
  • Mrs. (mistress)
  • Etc. (et cetera)

Informal abbreviations include:

  • H8 (hate)
  • 2day (today)
  • C (see)
  • 2 (to/too)
  • L8 (late)

What Are Internet Acronyms?

An acronym is another form of an abbreviation. However, instead of it being slightly shortened with a full-stop in the end, it’s simply created by using the first letters of a specific phrase and using the final product as a word itself. Although this may sound somewhat confusing, acronyms are used way more often than you may think. It’s a great way to shorten a phrase to make it easier for others to remember and/or pronounce.

Here are some examples of internet acronyms:

  • ASAP (as soon as possible)
  • DIY (do it yourself)
  • G2G (got to go)
  • DM (direct message)
  • FYI (for your information)

Why Do We Use Text Abbreviations / Internet Acronyms?

It’s only natural that text messages don’t use formal English and have many abbreviations. To start with, the texts are supposed to be instant, and it’s a lot easier and faster to write an abbreviation than a full phrase. Earlier, there has also been a limit of how many characters one text can have, so, if you wanted to say everything just in one text, you had to shorten as many things as possible. Finally, writing long messages on a phone’s tiny keyboard simply isn’t very convenient.

Do you know what TFW means? Or ICYMI? These are just two examples of many text abbreviations you can come across. You should get familiar with them and understand what they stand for even if you won’t use them yourself because most of your friends certainly will.

Texting acronyms examples:

  • SMH meaning“Shaking my head”
  • OFC meaning“Of course”
  • SMS meaning: “Short Message Service”
  • LMK  meaning: “let me know”
  • ROFL meaning“Rolling on floor laughing”
  • XOXO meaning: “Hugs and Kisses”
  • YOLO meaning: “You Only Live Once”

How to Use Text Abbreviations?

When it comes to using abbreviations while texting, it can be exciting to use as many abbreviations as you can, especially when it comes to texting someone, you’re close with or just to save some extra time. However, despite this being so common, it doesn’t mean that it’s appropriate in every situation, such as the professional world. So how exactly do you use text abbreviations in the business industry? Here are some tips!

1. Understand your audience

Before using abbreviations, think about whether they are appropriate for the person you are sending them to. For example, if you’re sending an e-mail or text to a group of people, then it may be a good idea to use a small number of abbreviations as you want to make sure that everybody understands.

2. Keep it simple and updated

Don’t use a bunch of abbreviations in your text or e-mail, it will come across as unprofessional. Make sure to also use abbreviations that are still used today and not the ones that no one uses anymore and perhaps not know about.

3. Be professional

This is probably the most important tip of all three. Like we’ve mentioned, you don’t want to come across as unprofessional. Therefore, stay away from slang and use the appropriate abbreviations that suit the situation!

Conversation Examples Using Text Abbreviations:

Here are some conversation examples using text abbreviations:

1. You’ll need to bring a notepad, a pen, etc.

2. Hey, I might be late by approx. 20 minutes

3. I’m so excited for the party 2morrow

4. Meet me at the lib.

Text Slang / SMS Language

What Is Text Slang?

Many people often confuse the difference between an abbreviation and slang, as they are considered to be the same thing and just two different ways of saying it. This, however, is not correct. The difference between an abbreviation and slang is simple.

An abbreviation as discussed above, is a shortened version of a piece of text, whilst slang is a completely different word used to replace another while still holding the same meaning and be significantly shorter than the original word. Another difference is that an abbreviation can be used in a formal manner, such as the examples mentioned above. However, slang is always informal. Therefore, if you’re writing for a professional or academic purpose, stay away from slang.

Here are some examples of commonly used slang:

  • Cap (lie/fake)
  • Gucci (good/cool)
  • Lit (amazing/cool)
  • Salty (bitter/angry)
  • Canceled (dismissed)

What Is SMS Language?

SMS language, also known as textspeak and texting language, stands for ‘Short Message Service’. When we say SMS language, we are talking about the abbreviated and slang language that is very common in texting. This evolving form of language was created in 1984 by Matti Makkonen, the man considered to be the father of SMS.

All of the words you use online, that you wouldn’t normally use in the real world are part of the SMS language.

Here are some more examples of SMS language:

  • SMH (shaking my head)
  • OFC (of course)
  • LMK (let me know)
  • XOXO (kisses and hugs)
  • YOLO (you only live once)

What Are Emoji and Emoticons?

Although commonly confused to mean the exact same thing, there is a significant difference between an emoji and an emoticon.

Emoji

An emoji is a small cartoon-like character, available to use during texting on most smartphones nowadays. These fun characters were created in 1999, by Japanese designer, Shigetaka Kurita. The popularity of emojis has increased massively in SMS language, more and more emojis being added to keyboards at a constant pace. They’re a perfect way to express feelings through text messages and use them to replace words, creating a fun and cute text message.

Encase you’re unfamiliar emojis look like this:

  • 🌍
  • 📞
  • 🎉

Emoticons

An emoticon is very similar; however, its difference is very significant. Although an emoji is colourful and already done for you, an emoticon doesn’t come with any colours and often have to be made by the person texting, using characters from their keyboard. This is because emoticons have been around for a little longer than emojis, as they were created in 1982 by Dr. Scott Fahlman.

Encase you’re unfamiliar emoticons look like this:

  • : – )
  • : – D
