Title: Netspeak in other languages?
Post by: miss_hazy on April 01, 2005, 05:31:47 am

I was just randomly pondering things, and came up with this.

Does anyone know if people who speak languages other than English use netspeak in their native language? Or do you speak a different language and use (or witness people using) netspeak in your language?

I was just wondering if netspeak was only an English thing.

Netspeak as in:

u = you
r = are
y = why
ttly = totally
plz = please
cuz = because
lyk = like

Etcetera...

Hmm, I'm Dutch and I use netspeak sometimes, but I speak alot of English with my friends.

Your second question, do you mean what netspeak people use (other then u - you, ... ) in their own language?

Yeah, that's basically what I meant. Is there Dutch netspeak?

Yeah, some replace the 'ij' with 'y' for faster typing I suppose. And sometimes they drop the vowels in a word.
I don't really use that much netspeak tbh, maybe just dropping the last letter of a word

In Spanish we use thousands of new ´words´ created for both Netspeak and sending messages with a mobile phone.

hey, artanis elensar and xenake! dutchy here too :P
netspeak? well, on dutch sites&forums we normally speak normal dutch, because IF you find people there who 'speak net' you can't make up any word of it. Sometimes we use things we also use on sms, like
w8ff= wacht even = wait a second
vanaaf= vanavond= tonight
idd= inderdaad= indeed

etc, etc, etc, blablabla

this is off topic, but u said ttyl = totally..

i never thought of that, i always used ttyl as talk to ya later

Post by: miss_hazy on April 02, 2005, 02:07:41 am

It's "ttly" -- "l" before the "y", for "totally". Yeah, "ttyl" is "talk to you later".

Anyway, that is interesting that you use netspeak in your own languages too. Netspeak makes every language just that much more confusing... haha. ;)

Well, regarding english netspeak, I only use lol occasionally. My first language is german but I don't tend to use netspeak there, actually, I'm not aware of german netspeak but I'm pretty sure it exists. ;D I'm not being very helpful I know, maybe some of the other germans on this board will drop in and give you some more info. ;)

yeah, i'm belgian (flemish part) and I use the same Dutch webspeak as the Dutches here (like 'idd' and 'ff', another one I often use: wrschlk = waarschijnlijk = probably) But I use english webspeak as well, also when i chat with people who speak dutch... So yeah, it gets a bit complicated now and then, lol

Here we (basically teens) use a lot of net speak or abreviations on msn and sms. Sometimes it gets almost impossible to understand what the other is saying. There is the tendency to use "x" instead of "ch" (because in portuguese it has almost the same sound) lots of "k" instead of "que" or "c" well, the list goes on. sometimes we also use some english abreviations like "lol" "omg" "asl".
I'll put some examples bellow:

d__ de __ from (it can also have other meanings depending on the context)

kd__ quando__ when

ond__ onde___ where

pk__porquê__why

ñ__não__no

ixo__ isso__that

xato__chato__boring

sffv___ se faz favor__ please

nm__nome__name

the list goes on ::)

I don't usually use this kind of language, I know it's quicker when you're talking with your friends on msn and stuff, but sometimes when you overuse it you can start writing abreviations all over the place even in school paper, so I try to avoid it :)
