Hello! Do you know any slang words else except U (you), N (and), COZ (because)? By the way is N written like 'N' or N (and)?

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. Emotion: smile

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.

More examples:

Later becomes l8ter.

See you becomes C U.

As soon as possible becomes ASAP.

Before becomes B4.

Forget becomes 4get.

Today becomes 2day.

It is usually abbreviated to 'n' (rock 'n' roll) or & (R&B).
