Vi siete mai chiesti cosa significano in realtà LOL, NP, LMAO, b4 e simili? Tutte abbreviazioni di origine inglese che utilizziamo comunemente in chat e sul web in genere.


Di acronimi ne esistono veramente tantissimi, cosi ho deciso di racchiuderli tutti qui per farveli conoscere assieme al loro significato. Per esempio NP significa ‘no problem’, mentre b4 sta per ‘before’. Dopo il salto pubblicitario trovate la lista completa ed il significato delle abbreviazioni inglesi usate in chat.
