Information about the Slangit website

General Overview (formerly is the Slang Dictionary. Whether you need to decipher messages in e-mail, online chat, or text messages, Slangit is here to help. This website contains thousands of acronyms, abbreviations, slang terms, and emoticons used in these modern communication mediums.


When chatting with friends online or typing quick text messages to friends, chat slang can be a big time saver. After all, it's much quicker to type acronyms and abbreviations than it is to type each word out. You can use Slangit to learn new shorthand techniques or to simply look up the meanings of slang terms you don't know. Make sure to check the Popularity rating of each term so you know how common the acronym, abbreviation, or slang term is. For a list of the most commonly used slang terms, view the Common Slang page.


Sometimes words just can't accurately express how you're feeling. Fortunately, when words aren't enough, you can use emoticons, or text-based expressions. These expressive faces are created from regular keyboard characters and can help indicate how you are feeling. Whether you are happy, sad, frustrated, tired, confused, excited, sarcastic, or indifferent, there is an emoticon to express your emotion. For a list of the most common emoticons, visit the Common Emoticons page.

The Slangit emoticons database includes expressions as well as other text-based images that represent people, characters, animals, objects, and actions. These unique types of emoticons can be used to add some extra flair to online chat sessions or email messages. For example, you can send someone a virtual rose using an emoticon. Some websites and messaging programs include emoticon shortcuts that will insert an image for the corresponding object or expression represented by the text-based emoticon. You can view these emoticons in the Emoticon Shortcuts section.


Leetspeak, or just plain "leet," is another form of online chat slang. It is often used by gamers and hackers as a code language for communicating online. Different characters are used to represent letters, allowing for many possible representations of each word. For example, the word "Leet" is often written "l33t," since "3" is a common replacement for the letter "e" in leetspeak. If you need help deciphering a word or phrase written in leetspeak, you can use the Leet Sheet as a reference.


Slangit contains thousands of acronyms, abbreviations, slang terms, and emoticons. However, new chat slang is being introduced all the time and therefore the Slangit database is constantly growing.
