Is "jeje" the Spanish equivalent of "Ha Ha" in English?
Is "jeje" the Spanish equivalent of "Ha Ha" in English? Or does is stand for something else (similar to LOL = "Laugh Out Loud" in English)?
usually jajajajaja I asked a former boyfriend, native Spanish speaker 'what is lol' in Spanish. That was his answer.
Of course, just like "ja, ja" is not "je,je", as pointed by Spudatodubs, neither is "ji,ji", nor "jo, jo" - the latter being mostly the domain of San Nicolás.
►I think this wikipedia page can help you.
In the following section of the page
Commonly used equivalents in other languages
they write that
jajajá: in Spanish, the letter "j" is pronounced "h" .
jejeje: in the Philippines is used to represent "hehehe". As in Spanish, "j" is pronounced as "h". Its origins can be traced to SMS language. It is widely used in a Filipino youth subculture known as Jejemons
►On our dictionary, you can see the following definition of
[¡ja, ja, ja!] or [¡je, je, je!]
Exclamation, denoting laughter.
► Or another page on wikitionary jajajá
►We can conclude that "ja, ja, ja" can function like "L O L" or "ha ha" in English (however, it is not a literal translation of "L O L", but "haha")

jeje would be pronounced hay hay... so for haha you would write jaja and for hehe you would write jiji
I wonder, does Spanish have a shorthard equivilent of "LOL" then, or would that be "jeje"? Are there other Spanish shorthand (texting-type) acronyms?
