"Kısa Mesaj" Sembol ve Kısaltmaları


Dearest Members,

WERV U BIN? PPL R starting to use SMS abbreviations all the time, OTOH not everyone understands what BCNU means. 2 SIT W/ SOM1 by MOB or email, SMS abbreviations R GR8. :-)

In plain English:
(Yani, herkesin anlayacağı İngilizce ile)

Where have you been? People are starting to use SMS abbreviations all the time, on the other hand not everyone understands what "be seeing you" means. To stay in touch with someone by mobile or email SMS abbreviations are great.

(-- sample passage quoted from )

As I'm sure you all know, in the world of the mobile phone, SMS stands for Short Message (or Messaging) Service and is the name given to the system that enables mobile phone users to send and receive text messages.

Abbreviations are used so that maximum use can be made of a limited space. The increasing popularity of SMS stems from the fact that messages are quick to write and can be a source
of entertainment to both the sender and the receiving person.

It is to be noted that the same kind of language is becoming quite standard in emails and conversations in Internet chat rooms.

So, here is a humble collection of emoticons, acronyms and abbreviations that might become handy in your e-mail messages, SMS and online chatting in English -- but, whatever you do with them,
please do not use them in your correspondence with me, for I am too old to start learning another "foreign" language...
