It amazes me the way most words are being  abbreviated  and are mostly used instead of writing  in full sentence.Most times it takes me  wide and hard  guessing to realize what the person might be saying,most of these abbreviated sentence I find mostly on Facebook and twitter they call them “chat slang”.Sometimes it’s annoying because I can’t even find them in the dictionary and maybe one day every words or sentences will be abbreviated.Before we write sentences in full but now everything has changed,even in the social media,reporter, celebrities,students,workers use abbreviated words or sentence…..but how in the world I’m I suppose to understand what it means for example  TGIF =Thank God it’s Friday  but it could mean many other thing like:

TGIF  could also mean THIS GIRL IS FABULOUS! or TIME GOES INCREDIBLY FAST or TOM GREEN IS FAT or THANK GOD I’M FEMALE………..and so on now the question is how am I to know which of the above my friend is saying?

Other abbreviated words I have seen on social medias are

SMH…(shaking my head) it could also mean SMOOCHING MY HUBBY or SEX ME HARRY or SECONDS, MINUTE,HOUR …..

OMG…..(Oh my God) could also mean OLIVIA MET GIL

LOL….(Laugh out loud)

NC….(No comment)

HBD….(Happy birthday)

LLNP…..(Long life and prosperity)

BRB….(Be right back)

TTYL…..(Talk to you later)

LHU……(Lets hook up)

LHO…..(Laughing head off)

BFF…..(Best friend forever)

OTP…….(On the phone)

KMFA…..(Kiss my fat ass)

And there are some abbreviated words that the letters don’t go with the words but the sound of the letters give you its meaning like:

r u da?….( are you there?)



There are more to these but these are the ones I find highly used on social web.You can write some of the abbreviated words or sentences you have heard and its meaning so I can be aware of them.

I checked the web to know how many chat slang that has been generated and to my surprise I found more than 300 hundred chat slang,now tell me how am I to know what this is if a friend write it to me (SDESWBA)?.Can someone help me think of what those letters could mean?
