Hello!

It was great to read the recent article on texting abbreviations that every parent should know. There were some that I have come across online, and used by adults that I am still in the dark about. You could spend all day googling and finding out the meaning of every abbreviation (and there seems to be a new one every day), but I thought it would be more fun if we each put one in the comments section that we have come across, so that we can teach each other and all stay in the loop. I often feel quite perplexed online when I read another person’s commentary, and then at the end of it there is a text abbreviation and I have no idea what it means. Not knowing the meaning of the abbreviation at the end is hard, because it can change the meaning of the commentary i.e if sarcasm is intended etc. If each of us pops an abbreviation down they have come across, it may help those of us that are less in the loop :)

  • The mostuzzling acronym I encountered was from my niece…..at the end of her SMEs she wrote MWA. I deliberated over this for ages as I was determined to embrace this new language but in the end I still had no idea and had to ring her and ask. She laughed as all teenagers do and it turned out she was blowing me a kiss. MWA is the noise you make!!! Who would of thought. Not me!

  • I’m finding these out nearly everyday, but I’m cautious to use some as I’m not sure at times.

    • Isn’t it funny, that with all of these acronyms that each person has possibly a different interpretation of what it could mean.

  • An abbreviation that had me puzzled was MWA. I had no idea and it was driving me mad. I ended up ringing the person who sent it and it was the sound you make when you blow a kiss……I never would of guessed!!!
