Your web slang dictionary
But what exactly is slang? Slang consists of a lexicon of non-standard phrases. Although slang lessens the amount of text used to convey a message, it does not lessen the implied meaning. In context, slang can convey anything from a sense of prestige (UT: University of Texas) to a sense of irony (using LOL in response to a serious message).
Beyond all the definitions, how is slang used today? SMS(Short Message Service) has made the use of web and tech slang a necessity. From sending a text, adding a tweet on twitter, to posting your status on Facebook; slang has become a part of our daily language.
As the use of technology progresses, so does our desire to quickly convey meaningful messages. The best example of this is our use of abbreviations and acronyms. It is hard to think of a day where you haven’t read TTYL (talk to you later), or OMG(oh my gosh) in a text message.
Developing technologies such as SMS also requires the use of acronyms. As web and tech enthusiasts, here at slang.org we use terms like CMS(content management system), and HTML(HyperText Markup Language) on a daily basis. Acronyms like this are also very helpful if you are looking to develop a site of your own.
That being said; why would we take the time to create a web slang dictionary? Our goal is to compile a complete list of slang used throughout the web and tech industry. In doing so, we hope to create a one-stop source for all things slang. So take a look through our trending now slang, or even browse by letter! Don’t see the term you are looking for?
