Alternative language

Post by Trucker Tricker » Sun Jul 24, 2005 9:51 pm

The world of BZChat and Internet chat in general seem to be evolving their own written language. :P ... and punctuation :D

In a way, it reminds me of listening to military conversation in which military personnel speak with a lot of acronyms. At least, Sailors in my area do. They don't think anything of it since they use the acronyms so much that the acronyms are part of their vocabulary in a sense. But to others, it's like a different language. So, for folks who are not used to chatting online, these little things like "brb" seem foreign.
