Online chatting, Instant Messaging and texting are completely integrated in our (online) life and that has had a big impact on  written language: acronyms became a new subculture language. Well known acronyms are for example; BTW – “By The Way”, OMG – “Oh, My God”, LOL – “Laughing Out Loud”, AFAIK – “As Far As I Know”, ETA – “Estimated Time of Arrival”.

A bit less known; CYA – “See Ya”, FUBAR – “Fucked Up Beyond All Repair”, ROTFLMAO – “Rolling On The Floor Laughing My Ass Off” and BCWYWF, YWMCT – “Be Careful What You Wish For, Your Wish Might Come True”…which obscure acronyms do *you* use?
