Da quando sono apparsi gli SMS con il loro limite di 160 caratteri la fantasia degli utenti si è sbizzarrita nel trovare abbreviazioni che, in due o tre lettere, contengano in realtà una frase compiuta. Molte di queste abbreviazioni o acronimi sono usate anche nelle chat, soprattutto dai più giovani. Eccovi, direttamente dal sito quickonlinetips, una serie di acronimi molto usati oltreoceano. Se chattate con amici americani o scrivete su un forum che abbia l’inglese come sua lingua principale, questa lista vi potrà tornare molto utile, se non altro per decifrare quello che altri utenti più smaliziati si dicono. A fianco di ogni abbreviazione troverete il significato in inglese.
