I’ve found myself more than once absolutely lost at expressions such as ALOL, ALAP, FE or FITB. There are others I’ve been gradually becoming familiar with, such as ASAP, FAQ, LOL or FYI. Things are each time I come across a new Internet or SMS acronym I go nuts googling till I bump into a good list where I finally find out that the acronym I’m looking for hasn’t been listed yet. A comforting feeling, if ever there was one ;D
That’s why today I was needing again one of those acronym dictionaries and I found three good sites compiling lots of these so I’ll post them here as a good resource to avoid unsuccessful googling next time:
- The Largest List of Text Message Shorthand (IM, SMS) and Internet Acronyms Found of the Web
- Internet Slang – Internet Abbreviations
And, if you wonder, I didn’t find what I was looking for -OMGNA!
