...lol!

When you use the word are you actually rolling on the floor laughing?
That would be funny!

Yeah LMAO sounds better then LOL...from now on when I have the urge to use these phrases, I will litterally say LMAO...it'll be great!!

I'll actually spell it out... "L-M-A-O"...or could we pronouce it La-Mao (as in the ruler of China that one time).... La-Mow... Hmm...a thought to ponder...

roflz, no i usually say it at things that aren't funny enough to actually laugh at.....

its like funny you know, and it makes me crack a smile but not actually laugh

then i'll say roflz

if i'm rolling on the floor laughing the last thing i'm thinking about is saying roflz

Yes, I tend to try and sound it out before actually using it to see which way sounds better!
The pronunciation you gave me is the way I say it in my mind!

My first time thinking of this is when my grandpa died and all the family had a list of questions to answer about him on paper that was later put in a memorial book!

I answered a question sarcastically and caught myself writing lol!

LOL...that sounds pretty cool!
Like I said, if I was to actually say something like this I would get finished laughing first!
I think it's funny!

It sounds like it could pass as a different language!
I think I will really start using it!

Brb~ Burb, Barb, Berb
Ttyl~ Titel

Its like a revolution!! For the English language...but backwards?

Berb
Rawful
LaMao
TTYL - this one might have to be spelled out...
IDK - this might have to be spelled as well.....

I'm so going to catch myself doing this...I know it already....lol

lol, I sometimes find myself using the lol or ttyl in normal conversation. Its kinda weird but I like it. It really annoyes me though when people use things like that when they dont mean it. Like someone says rofl and they arnt even laughing.

this is the most horrible thing i've ever read. I couldn't talk to someone, or take them in any way seriously if I heard them say "rwfulz" out loud, or "Lol". I'd politely ask them to leave my office/house.

It's easier to just laugh isn't it? Isn't that what you'd do if you were laughing out loud? You'd be laughing out loud, and there'd be no need to fake it!

Yea, lol!
Your crazy!
...haha!


I really dont go around saying these things!
I just wondered if people had an urge to sometimes!

I have only said lol before to be a goofball at a party!
I do sound them out in my head though when reading!

I think the younger crowds will do things like this!

What really ticks me off is that we send our kids to school to read and write and they use text speak more than anything!:shk:

LOL it IS evolving...but as much as I joke about using it every day *I don't actually THINK thats a good idea to be leaked into Everyday Use*. It's evolving into the sense that its conveniant for the Internet and Text Messages...but The English Language, doesn't need to take 10 steps backward...


Funny stuff...Rawful.

In my case I don't use chat speak when I talk. I'm too much of being in the habit of being wordy to do so. Yes, I honestly talk like this at times. (chuckle)


Hmm thinking of other languages. I was just thinking of what LMAO may be pronounced like LaMao someone said. You know what popped into the albeit very strange mind when I read that? It sounded to me like a French cat. LaMao! Good grief chat language transcends species!!

I normally have one of those "dear god i spend to much time on the internet" moments when i see or hear somthing funny in real life and say in my head "lol" :bash:
