A) Conduct a web search for the key words “SMS Language”. Then continue:

  2. Based on your scanning of these 2 sites

  6. Do you use emoticons with your SMS texting? With emailing? What is emoticon for “confused”?

Part two

Student one:

Okay, I must admit, this course is getting more interesting…. Do I use emoticons with my SMS texting? Absolutely! Especially, when I am having a casual conversation with my friends. Typing word to word could look weird (smiles). My husband, on the other hand, is a complete opposite. Two days ago, I had to tell him what LOL stands for. Haha!

When it comes to email or professional conversations, I stay away from using acronyms/abbreviations or emoticons. My 5 most used emoticons are FYI, LOL, QQ, BRB and ASAP. This is what an emoticon for a confused face looks like on iPhone

These are the 20 phrases in SMS language and its English translation, I can think of.

ROFL = Rolling On Floor Laughing.

AKA = Also Known As

LOL = Laugh Out Loud

OMG = Oh My God or Goodness

IDK = I Don’t Know

BTW = By The Way

FYI = For Your Information

QQ = Quick Question

LMFAO = Laughing My Freaking Ass Off.

SMH = Shaking My Head.

NVM = Never Mind.

IKR = I Know Right.

BRB = Be Right Back

ACK = Acknowledge

LMK = Let Me Know.

ILY = I Love You.

YOLO = You Only Live Once.

OFC = Of Course.

ASAP = As Soon As Possible


Student two:

This is certainly an interesting topic for this week. It really has prompted me to think about the type of communication that I am using everyday. I found that I started to scan some of my text messages in order to see exactly which acronyms I use daily. Here are some SMS language acronyms that I either use daily or found to be funny / mildly entertaining.

CYA – Cover Your Ass

RTM or RTFM – Read The Manual

CODE9 – Parent / Guardian Approaching

WTPA – Where the Party At?

IDC – I Don’t Care

CYE – Check Your Email

AIAMU – And I’m a Monkey’s Uncle

FISH – First In, Still Here

CWOT – Complete Waste of Time

DIC – Drunk In Charge

GAB – Getting a Beer

IJ- Inside Joke

IJPMP – I Just Pissed My Pants

LOL – Laugh Out Loud

NM -Not Much or Nevermind

WTF – What the F***

IDK – I Don’t Know

BTW – By the Way

RGR – Roger That (both ways)

The five that I think I use the most are BTW, RGR, WTF, NM, and LOL. I had to reflect a little regarding whether or not I used emoticons. The answer is “Mostly Not” I have used : ) and : P a few times, but I rarely use them, mainly because I never had any interest in learning the keyboard alphanumeric combinations for them. Instead I use Apple’s ever growing collection of hilarious .GIF pictures to capture emotions that I would like to portray. I think that more often than not I will send : ) at the end of an email to certain people that I know personally, but I rarely use emoticons for the aforementioned reasons. I have no idea what the emoticon for confused is… I would guess ?:| OK, BRB. Going to go and look it up… And we are back, and it is not what I thought. The emoticon for confused is : $
