    Some abbreviations date back to the 1980’s or earlier, as they were used on Internet communications.

    Others came around during the txt’ing age.


    some abbreviations go back to the telegraph age, when you paid for every word you sent. Some go back even further, to the Quipu system of the Incas (talking knots).

    Many words that were two separate words, like “to day” became one word, today. Western Union would count the words, and disallow words it thought were illegitimate compound words. The newspapers, which were very large users of telegraph services (think foreign correspondents) would show Western Union that these were indeed single words, just look at what they’re printing in the newspaper.

    this goes back:

    ASAP – as soon as possible.

    SAP – soon as possible.

    SAPIEST – sooner than soon as possible.


    i k m a. h a y?? i l a b i m l s e!!!!

    Shticky Guy

    ha ha ha ha – If there were any witches nearby, they would have corrected your spelling of the OP!

    I notice some ppl are embarassed to ask what an abbreviation stands for if they think they should know it.

    I recently put MAMB at the end of a post and nobody queried it. (It was homemade and stands, of course, for Mishenichnas Adar Marbim B’simcha).

    Chayav bubbelle, what does “i k m a. h a y?? i l a b i m l s e” mean?

    Is it: I Know My Alcohol. How ABout You?? I Love A Bottle In Mornings Like Someone Else?

    ha ha ha ha~ I just don’t understand why the Mods didn’t correct it.(selicha, Mods). when I’m in doubt about a spelling, I google it. on my computer that died, I had Firefox w/ a spell checker; I’m now using my son’s, & it doesn’t seem to have a spell checking option. but it’s no big deal to look it up.
