Email and Internet Acronyms (2)


Sometimes numbers are used for the way they look like words when written.  One of these is 303 which means "Mom". (If 3 is turned downward it looks like "M" (m).

Here's a list of just a few common acronyms:

  A3 = Anytime, Anyplace, Anywhere
  AAMOF = As a matter of fact
  AFAIK = As far as I know
  B4N = Bye for now     BB4N = Bye bye for now
  BI5 = Back in 5     ( returning to the PC in 5 minutes)
  Cya = See you
  Cuz = because
  def = definitely
  DOA = dead on arrival    (This comes from hospital language and means a person who was already dead when he was brought in.  It now is used in many situations to mean something which has no chance at all.)                  (G.K)
