How to save the words on Internet

No doubt that las redes sociales y las aplicaciones de mensajería instantánea nos han traído toda una “communications revolution”, tanto así que incluso ha alterado nuestra forma de escribir economizando las palabras que utilizamos.

Uno de los fenómenos lingüísticos relacionados directamente con la comunicación en Internet y en las redes sociales que más se esta utlizando es abbreviation.

La abreviación es un procedimiento lingüístico que consiste en la reducción de una palabra mediante la supresión de determinadas letras o sílabas; as is the case of Acronyms, shortening, Abbreviations and Acronyms.

Using justifications as pressure to answer sooner the better, either friends so user @ s in the use of smartphone or social networks, ever saved more words in our communications (incluso en ocasiones nos ahorramos todas las palabras, using emojis in his stead).

The abbreviations are basic to save letters but, both, they can make more confusing messages.

You know what means such GTG, ROFL btw?

Como usuari@s digitales nos podemos encontrar con estas abreviaturas y bien dice el refrán “knowledge does not take place”, por ello aquí tienes las abreviaturas más comunes usadas en Internet y en las redes sociales.
