Anonymous:This isn't slang - it's text abbreviations.
I don't think you'll find any teachers of the English language, who are willing to teach this. Most of the times it's rather annoying to other readers.
I don't know many abbreviations - so I for one can't help you on your way.
Veronica 222U (you), N (and), COZ (because)These are examples of what is called SMS language. Cell phone users use this kind of langauage when
they send text messages. This language is considered pretty convenient in that it allows the sender to
type much less and communicate quite quickly.
Later becomes l8ter.
See you becomes C U.
As soon as possible becomes ASAP.
Before becomes B4.
Forget becomes 4get.
Today becomes 2day.
Veronica 222 By the way is N written like 'N' or N (and)?It is usually abbreviated to 'n' (rock 'n' roll) or & (R&B).
