Do unfamiliar acronyms come up when you receive a text? You scratch your head and consider asking the person what they meant by IMO, for instance, (which means “in my opinion.”) Then, you give it a second thought and don’t ask because you might feel embarrassed to admit that you don’t know what IMO means. Gosh, you may be the only one in your peer group who never heard of that acronym. Or, you might be a parent trying to find out just what your child is saying or what type of texts he/she is receiving.
If you think about it, maybe you’d do an acronym search for IMO on Google, but wouldn’t it be nice to have a handy list to check acronyms against? That way, you’ll be armed and ready for new texting acronyms that come your way. Well, you are in luck because we have such a list! Should you run into texting acronyms that we have not included, please feel free to comment below.
