What was that..????
Is a rose still a rose by any other name???? Yes when you are talking about a Text chat that is.
In the past few months that I have become involved with chatting online I have found there is a langue all its own. You ever been typing to someone and see a list of letters you have no idea what the other person is saying. Well I am sure it will not be the first or last time this will happen to you or me. Since I have been researching this slang of text. I have found over 1200 different ways to say things.
Uggh!!!!ÖÖ But donít worry you need not know them all to have a good time with it. If it is something you are not sure of just ask. Allot of them I have found are used depending on where you are from. I have started a listing of the most popular ones to help all the newbie out there.

  What does that mean....... This is just a few of the Im slangs that are used allot of the time. I will be updating them from time to time so just keep checking back. Have fun with them ........ :o)
