I need help with chat talk in Spanish
I communicate on the computer through instant messaging and other methods to friends I met in Spanish speaking countries. Most of them don't know any English. Is there a place to find some of the computer lingo like "lol", etc. that is regularly used by Spanish speaking people? Sometimes I'm not sure if they are typing a word I don't know, whether it's a typo or actual lingo. Please help with my confusion. Thanks!
This is one of the sites I found for you:
And this of course:
x q = porque o por qué tqm/tkm = te quiero mucho ntk/ntc = no te creas bn = bien tmb = también c = se e/a = estuvo aquí t/c = te cuidas sbs = sabes nda/nd/na = nada tqmca/tkmca = te quiero mucho como amigo/a q/k = que q/k p2 = ¿que onda? tas/stas = estás k acs = ¿qué haces? grax = gracias por fa = por favor n/c = no cambies tq1ch/tk1ch = te quiero un chorro oie = oye ia = ya io = yo t = te
Please do not feel tempted to use this here on the forum though, jeje.
Well I am not sure about the who LOL thing or any of that but you can shorten up words such as...
and i just write jaja or jeje instead of LOL.
I like to chat a lot with spanish speaking people and you learn a lot
well jaja really isn't lol... jaja is like haha
I am not sure if there is a spanish equivalent to lol or not...

Someone should devote a book to the subject. My suggestion for a title "Spanish for Dummies". jaja/jeje/jiji
I hope this thread does not become a place to learn bad English or Spanish. I also hope SpanishDict will not tolerate the bastardization of either languages. I like to think that I can come here to this learning location to be educated not mislead. Perhaps there is room here for jive, etc. but not together with normal language. I am not purist, but I am aiming to be better than I am now.
Jajaja is like an agreement laugh, jejej is like a hehehe or cutesy laugh, jijiji is your equivulant to lol. But as in one of the other posts it does depend on the person you are talking with.
I heard alot of other one's but It all just depends upon who's writing you. The best thing to do is know your Spanish grammar, so that you can then try to translate the shorthand stuff that they write.
jaja=lol....sometimes they will write an expression so try to translate it if u can't see if someone in the room can
