"Typing shortcuts are handy for slower typers, especially those with disabilities, as it is a quick and easy way of posting a sentence."

Shortcut list of some of the common acronyms and abbreviations used in chat rooms, SMS messages on cell phones, and instant messengers such as Yahoo and MSN. Handy for people with disabilities, slower typers, and teenagers.

What is an Acronym

An Acronym is a word formed from the initial letters of a name much like an abbreviation or text shortcut, such as LOL, which means Laughing out loud, and can also mean Lots of Luck. Another example many teens often use is the abbreviations "POS " - parent(s) over shoulder, or "PAL" - Parents Are Listening, to indicate to the chat recipient that they are unable to talk because a parent is present.

Typing shortcuts are handy for slower typers, especially those with disabilities, as it is a quick and easy way of posting a sentence. Teenagers also commonly abbreviate words when texting on cell phones to save time.

Here are some of the most common chat room acronyms or abbreviations. These typing short cuts are also used in Email messages, IM messenger programs such as MSN and Yahoo, and commonly used today in SMS messages as text shortcuts when texting on mobile or cell phones.
