Tek

What is tek short for?

Take

Tek heart, because you now know tek can be used in place of "take." This abbreviation is mostly used in online chat, but also pops up on social media and in text messages.

Kewl kids and those attempting to model a Jamaican English accent are most likely to replace take with tek. Confusingly, tek can also be used to mean "technique" or "technology," and it could even refer to a TEC-9 semi-automatic pistol. However, outside certain illicit circles, tek most commonly means take.

Example

"Tek a break, man. It's just a game."
