$LNgs & LnGo

As wikipedia says:

Slang is the use of informal words and expressions that are not considered standard in the speaker’s dialect or language. Slang is often to be found in areas of the lexicon that refer to things considered taboo (see euphemism). It is also used to identify with one’s peers. Slang expressions can spread outside their original areas to become commonly used, like “cool” and “jive.”

Lingo:

#  Language that is unintelligible or unfamiliar.
# The specialized vocabulary of a particular field or discipline: spoke to me in the lingo of fundamentalism. Definition: dialect spoken by a group

Now one must be wondering what’s with me with all this lingo slang thingy, today when i was on Facebook, i noticed that some one had said LMAO. This is not the first time i have seen this acronym (which i assumed it to be a part of a slang/lingo), but today as i was jobless i “google”d it.. Then i got to know there are many such words that i wasnt aware of.

It is the same old thing i always say, i’m pretty late in knowing this, but nevertheless – better late than never … ūüôā you know what i mean, eh?? ūüėõ

Never mind, now coming back to the topic: lingo and slangs… Here are a list of a few of them that i think is SUPER COOL and planning to use it in my everyday use…!! So go through them and pick ’em up if you like and start on… Psstt, do i sound old?? Nein im just in my 20s still and im pretty lame to know such things soooooo late… Apologies…!!! ūüėõ

I knew some of them and i dint know some…!!! this is as FYI 4 al U nice PPL…!!! NJY…!!!! ūüôā
