Slang Dictionary

On this page you will find a list of slang words, acronyms and abbreviations used in websites, chat rooms, blogs, Internet forums or text messaging with cell phones.

There are many such words in use, some are more widely understood than others, and new ones are evolving all the time. This list is large but incomplete; however it should contain the more commonly used slang words and abbreviations.

If you have any new abbreviations or acronyms of this type that I can add to this list, please e-mail me with them so that I can update the list!
