ENGLISH TEXT ACRONYMS & PHRASES / LIVE British English Lesson with Anna English

19.Jul.2021

hello everyone and welcome to another
lesson with me Anna English here on
English like a nickname broadcasting to
you live from London today we're looking
at text chat text acronyms and text
phrases so funny little words and
letters that you see which sometimes
confuse me even so we're looking at
these little acronyms the most popular
ones at least to see if we can make
sense of them so if you're here say
hello I've been speaking to some of you
already in the chat room I do of course 
have my skype group open for my patrons
and of course there is the live chat
room here on YouTube so feel free to
leave a message and say hello to me I
will try and respond to as many of you
as I can but I'm going to do that at the
end of the lesson so that if you're
watching this as a pre-recorded video
you don't get bored because you weren't
here at the live broadcasting time so
let's get straight into it shall we
acronyms so when you are texting when
you are texting either sending an email
when you're texting on your phone maybe
you're sending an M an MSN an actual
message maybe you're sending a whatsapp
message or if you're tweeting then you
might use acronyms in fact I would be
interested to know where do you do most
of your chitchat chitchat is kind of
like informal idle talk chitchat
where do you chitchat most I use
whatsapp every single day I mean I have
a work what's that group I have an
English whatsapp group so we talk every
day I also talk with my family and my
friends via whatsapp more than anything
else I sometimes use facebook Messenger
I occasionally use Skype but most of my
texting most of my text chat goes
through whatsapp and Facebook message
so I'm interested to know what kind of
chat do you use on a regular basis
does anyone send actual text messages
anymore from their phone
I do but very very rarely so let's have
a look at some of these popular acronyms
I will then also point out which ones
are suitable for formal occasions and
which ones are only suitable for
informal occasions so I'll do this by
putting an F for formal in fact let me
put a little key up here for you so F
equals comma and I F
if equals informal alright so the first
one you might see is just the number
four this is informal just the number
four to mean the word for so I might say
thank you for helping thank you for
watching there we go thank you for
watching my video thank you for watching
my video
oh there's another good point actually
so I might also shorten the word you to
simply the letter U so let's say this
one again I could say thank you for
watching my video so make it super short
and this again is informal so thank you
for thank you for watching my video both
of these informal absolutely fine to use
with your friends with your family in
text messages and whatsapp in WeChat
whichever one you use you can use these
little versions of the words we also use
the number two to mean to oh by the way
do feel free to put your own example
sentences using these words I'll
scroll back and have a look later but
it's good practice so feel free to put
your own example sentences while I'm
writing up mine so I might say I have to
go to the shop I have to go to the shop
and there I've exchanged the word two
for the number two this is informal you
should not use this in a business email
or a business message or text or
anything informal so the next one is BFF
meaning best friends forever
this one really confuse me the first
time I saw is that what's a BFF I saw
people talking about BFF we're BFFs
we're BFFs I would hear on the
television if I heard interviews perhaps
with like pop stars they say oh yes
we're BFFs
what are BFFs well BFFs are best friends
forever
apparently so I might say she is my BFF
she is my best friend forever
this of course I should probably would
have guessed is informal it's very
informal BFF do you have a BFF so then
we have this one and this is another one
that I only learnt recently this one
confused me for a long time it's also
informal and it's BAE we pronounce it
BAE
so you'll notice some of them we say
just the letters BFF we don't we don't
say buff buff we say BFF and but with
some of them we do say a little word
rather than saying the letters and with
this one we say BAE hey BAE you're my
BAE and to be someone's BAE is to mean
that you're very important to them like
you're their number 1 you're the person
that they put before
anyone else before anyone else and
that's what it actually stands for you
are my top priority so your BAE your BAE
is normally like your husband or your
wife your boyfriend or girlfriend
somebody that you love your BAE I
actually have to admit that I thought
BAE who is short for baby I thought oh
that's a weird shortening of the word
baby or babe but it's it means before
anyone else so let us carry on we have a
very popular one now yes I would say
that it this is informal this is
definitely informal but there is a
version that is formal I'll give you in
a minute and it's by the way by the way
and if you don't want the phrase by the
way means it's kind of like just to let
you know that's what it means just to
let you know so I'm going to give you
some extra information for your
information so that you know you might
need to know just so you know there has
been an accident on the m25 which might
slow you down when you're driving home
so just some additional information just
so you know the boss at work has had a
very bad day so he might be in a bad
mood he might not be but just so you
know he's had a bad day so be aware so
be TWU
by the way by the way I use quite a lot
by the way now if you're going to use it
in a formal situation it's better to use
the phrase fYI I have written FYI
in formal emails to my colleagues fYI
this is for your information fYI there
will be no public transport to the venue
tomorrow fYI the client wants to speak
to you tomorrow
let me just put an example centers here
for you and in fact let's take this
whole thing down here so I got we are we
are leaving we are leaving at 9:00 a.m.
and by the way I am bringing my dog by
the way I'm bringing my dog and here you
might say the meeting starts at 9:30
a.m. and FYI the client is what we say
the client is very impressed so far ok
so the next one are we all okay I
realize I'm not speaking to you very
much here are we all okay are we happy
is this helping and if you are finding
this helpful then please do show me your
thumb it's always good to gauge what
works for you and what doesn't work so
well so if you're finding this helpful
please show me your thumb let me know in
the comments that this is helpful for
you so I know what kinds of lessons I
should do in the future and what it's
just completely rubbish so do let me
know ok so let's move on to tomorrow a
couple of you are saying that you do a
different acronym for this one so some
of you just write what are you writing
TM are for tomorrow okay so let's put
these in so some of you just write this
tomorrow I feel like it would need this
on hmm I don't know maybe I shouldn't
include it how many people do use a
different acronym for tomorrow how many
people use a different acronym for
tomorrow I'll be interested to see that
so I can
see one of you mentioning it so far and
yes one of you has mentioned the bit the
word bf4 boyfriend will add that
something at the end remind me at the
end on that that on so some of you do do
this so what I've been so tomorrow
tomorrow
this is informal don't use this in a
formal situation ever so I can't wait
until tomorrow
car wait till tomorrow or tomorrow I
can't wait till two until tomorrow this
means I'm very excited if you say I
can't wait
generally means you're excited perhaps
if I was going to a concert of my
favorite pop star tomorrow I'd be like I
can't wait until tomorrow it's so
exciting I can't wait also you could use
the phrase I can't wait to me and you're
impatient well I'm sorry I can't wait
any longer I'm going I've waited for you
for five minutes and you're not here so
I'm going I can't wait so you'll have to
listen to the context to know whether
it's impatience or whether it's an
excitement and anticipation already so
we have the acronym oh not the acronym
sorry the shortening of the word tonight
to night it's literally spelt how it
sounds and this is informal as I'm sure
you've probably guessed informal I am
I'm very busy tonight
sorry I'm very busy tonight sorry in
fact let's change this there's a phrase
that I'm constantly having to explain to
my students I have done a video on this
and that's the phrase I'm afraid which
means I'm sorry I'm afraid I'm very busy
tonight
I'm afraid I'm very
busy tonight this just means I'm sorry
I'm very busy tonight it doesn't mean
I'm actually scared it means I'm sorry
okay
some of you are using different acronyms
for this not acronyms so I keep saying
the word acronyms that's not correct
different ways to shorten it tonight
some of you write it like this of course
these are not official words so
whichever one you use it it's it's fine
as long as it's for an informal message
and as long as it's understood if the
person reading your message has no idea
what it means then it's no it's no good
okay so the next one I am H oh this
means in my honest or humble opinion so
you were saying in my opinion I have
also seen IMO in my opinion but this
just emphasizes it look in my humble
opinion in my honest opinion so you
might say I like I like you but in my
honest opinion I think I don't think you
are funny I like you but in my honest
opinion
I don't think you're funny okay so nice
my patrons here are giving me a couple
of different acronyms you spelt you do
tomorrow like that

one's on the list it's coming up I've
never seen this one before

then have is oh this I have seen used in
kind of classified ads or in when people
are wrong on when people are searching
for a date perhaps on a dating website

something you might have a profile where

fun-loving girl is oh a what am I
looking for I'm a fun-loving girl in
search of a in search of a life partner

business sense

let's have a look back at our list where
are we up to so see ya this of course is
an informal acronym see ya and you might
say it was nice to catch up if you catch
up with someone it means you speak to
someone and find out what is how
coming in their life when you haven't
spoken to them for a very long time you
have a catch up it was nice to catch up
with you see you soon
this is informal to only with your
friends or your family see ya
this one I've seen regularly on live
chats and if you're having a text
conversation with someone or you're in a
chat room then I've seen this quite a
lot it means they're just going to nip
away from the room for a minute and
they'll be back be right back
of course this is informal so you might
say there is someone at the door
be right back and that's all you'd say
know someone at the door I'll be right
back
and then we have this one I haven't seen
myself so apparently it's very popular
bye for now bye for now so you might say
I have to go to sleep bye for now bye
for now
has anyone else seen this one anyone Oh
less Aras has dropped a super chat thank
you so much our ass that money will be
going straight in the penny pot towards
the new microphone setup so thank you
that's very kind of you
you do know when you send a super chat
you can leave a message with it as well
I think you sent a super chat before
correct me if I'm wrong but that's very
much appreciated and I'm sure everyone
who's watching appreciates it too
because it's everybody else who benefits
from the contributions that people like
you make and as well that my patrons
make on a regular basis thank you it's
very very kind of you so let's go back
to the notes that we have this I've seen
a lot later so you might say this is
informal so you know in formal so you
might say
[Music]
I will he will call me later
state capitals so it's clear he will
call me later I hope he will call me
later
I hope so here we go
you'll call me later I hope that's
pretty easy then we also have the work
great great and this of course is
informal
the concert was great thank you
concert was great thank you that capital
so you can see it clearly then we have F
WIW I haven't seen this much myself has
anybody else anyone else seen F wiw for
what it's worth for what it's worth and
you would use you would use for what
it's worth as a phrase when you are
about to give a piece of advice or an
opinion and you don't know whether the
person listening is interested you don't
know how much they value your opinion
for example if if I'm sat with a
stranger and the stranger is upset
because somebody has just said their
dress looks ugly and that person is
upset and they don't know me I might
turn to them and say for what it's worth
I actually really liked your dress so
I'm saying to them I don't know if my
opinion is important to you but for
whatever it's worth for what it's worth
I think this so f wi w is the acronym
for fort it's worth
so you might say for what it's worth I
think you can do better for what it's
worth let's say that someone been dumped
I am so sorry I'm so sorry that he
dumped you babe
mm-hmm but for what it's worth I think
you can do better okay let's have a
quick look at what my patrons are saying
here Eric and I have never seen this if
you put this in a message to me I
wouldn't understand what you mean
because obviously hand is a word that's
what as well hand is Moses and so if you
wrote hand in a message I would
completely misunderstand you so be
careful with that one
hi Anna UK have summer hour now and we
are on British summer time and you'd say
does the UK or is this is the UK on
summertime what to call it is the UK on
summer time now or is it summer in the
UK it's supposed to be but it doesn't
look like it does it it's quite grey
outside it's very cold at the moment as
well for this time of year and it's been
a bit rainy in a bit blustery so it
doesn't feel like summer at the moment
but hopefully it will again soon so then
we have NP again informal no problem so
if someone says can you can you can you
do the washing up when they say I'm
really sorry I'm not able to do the
washing up because I've hurt my back oh
yeah you can't
oh you can't wash up question mark
question mark question mark okay no
problem I will do it
I could get home okay so then you have
this one which I hear a lot and see a
lot now some people when I've said this
on the channel have been up very
offended and upset but you must
understand then this particular phrase
is widely acceptable in the UK and in
America and it has nothing to do with
religion nothing to do with religion at
all it's just something that's become a
part of our culture
to mean shock or to express being
excited or just to have an extreme
reaction to something that kind of
reaction
OMG meaning oh my god or oh my gosh is
earth / lighter way of saying it but
lots of young people these days say oh
my god oh my god
or OMG OMG and it's got nothing to do
with religion so you can't get offended
at this expression if you are with
British or American English speakers
it's just part of our culture and has
it's by no way trying to undermine
religion in any respect so as long as
you all understand that we call and this
is of course informal do not write OMG
in a business message or in a business
email one of you is asking is om FG rude
yes oMFG well it depends cuz you would
only ever use this with your friends
anyway so I wouldn't so in front of my
mum for example in front of my mum I
might I mean I probably wouldn't but I
might say oh my god mum did you hear
what happened I might but I would never
say oh my effing god because the F in
oMFG stands for the F word the swear
word King I'm not gonna say
yes it stands for a very bad swear word
and my mom doesn't like me swearing of
course I don't think any mom likes their
children's wearing so I would never say
to my mom oh my effing God mom did you
hear about what happened on the news so
I would say oMFG in some circumstances
can be a bit rude or some people might
not like you saying it but you know it
depends
some people find cursing completely
acceptable and not a problem so you
might say I met I met a cute
oh no that's not your cute cute is a bad
word bad bad what cute should be
reserved for children and animals
I met a gorgeous no I met I met my new
work colleague and OMG he is drop-dead
gorgeous to be drop-dead something again
that's an informal phrase if someone's
drop-dead gorgeous it means they're so
gorgeous you drop dead you know they're
so amazing like I've had a heart attack
because you're so gorgeous you're
drop-dead gorgeous but that is
completely informal alright okay so am L
saying
oMFG is something I know who says they
hear it from okay eros you meet a lot of
people in the UK who use oMFG you have
to understand that there are a lot of
people in the UK who are okay with
swearing who use curse words on a
regular basis and it depends on the
circumstance you're in and who you're
with sometimes I say swear words it
depends who I'm with though I would
never swear in front of children
I would never swear in front of people I
respect I would never swear in front of
my students or in a work situation
I would never swear in front of my mum
or my grandma and so it really depends
on the situation if I'm just talking
with my close friends and I'm getting
passionate about something I'm speaking
about if I get angry perhaps then I
might use a swear word yeah as a way to
just heighten my expression but some
natives use more swearing than others
and that doesn't really answer your
question it's just explaining explaining
how things are over here
okay where are we up to Oh tee off topic
so you might be talking about something
and then say and then change the topic
so you might say I finished I finished
that work I finished I finished the
housework finished the housework yay oh
no that doesn't work and what would we
say you might maybe you're talking about
you maybe you're talking about whether
your friend should get a haircut
I think you should go for it
a perm will a perm is curly hair a perm
will really suit you and then all we
might say by the way off topic
by the way off topic I met or how about
I bumped into your brother last night so
by the way remember we covered that a
minute ago off topic
oh no don't chase around what's happened
oh no back away off topic I bumped into
to bump into somebody is to meet someone
unexpectedly
so I I'm walking down the street and
then
I I don't literally bump into them but I
come face to face with my friends Oh
fancy meeting you here I can't believe
we just bumped into each other on the
street so it's meeting someone
unexpectedly so by the way off topic I
bumped into your brother last night and
just to reiterate a perm is a curly
hairstyle so if I have straight hair
which I do and I go and ask the
hairdresser to make it permanently curly
permanently curly so I always have curly
hair that means I have a perm perms are
not very popular at the moment but they
were very popular in the 80s in the
nineteen eighteen hundreds in the
nineteen eighty hundreds in the nineteen
eighties I need I need more sleep I
think I'm very tired today okay so where
are we up to
POV did I this is informal POV formal
POV can be used is an industry term in
filming a POV shot is a shot from
somebody's point of view a POV but we
also use it just to talk about thinking
about someone from something from
another person's point of view so I
might say I would like to get his POV on
the new brand design participating on
the new brand brand design point of view
point of view now to be honest with you
in business messaging of formal
messaging I would in most cases
especially if it's work I would avoid
acronyms as much as possible there are
one or two which you possibly could use
and that is fYI fYI is quite acceptable
and
ASAP is the other one I left at the end
ASAP otherwise I would avoid acronyms as
much as possible when when we're
discussing business messages but POV is
very formal and a term that's used in
industries so you can use it if you want
to Pete of the TT why L talk to you
later
so it's very straightforward I about to
jump into the bath TT while I'm about to
jump into the bath ttyl to jump into the
bath means or I'm about to means it's
going to happen any moment now I'm about
to it's just about to happen to jump
into the bath is to get into the bath
quickly I'm just about to or just to get
in the bath point of view means opinion
yes someone's opinion is their point of
view how they see things so for example
how I see things how I see a situation
might be completely different how you
see a situation how someone views this
lesson might be different how the next
person views lesson I get lots of nasty
comments you don't see them because I
have them marked as abusive messages so
that my my viewers don't see them but I
have a list of abusive messages which I
get to look through and make sure that
no nice messages have slipped in and so
I know that a lot of people find my
lessons unhelpful some people think that
they're terrible lessons and that is
their point of view other people think
these lessons are very helpful and
really really like them and find them
fun and entertaining so there are lots
of people who watch these videos who
have very different POVs very different
points of view okay
so let's carry on
and then it's have a quick look at my
patrons how are you doing there guys and
hi Anna yes we were to talked about that
AKA AKO we should add that one at the
end and let me remember to do that one
at the end that's a good one
hi Anna sorry arrived late that's okay J
hi everyone lovely okay so we have that
was informal I thought this was going to
be a quick lesson but it's turning into
a quite a long lesson I'm trying to go
as quick as I can do you know what
actually I think you can use this
formally because I see this as a
shortened version on on advertising so I
think you can use that formally so you
might say that
please son detect with your full address
please send a text with your full
address all right let's carry on
lol definitely informal and this is
something that's only been around for a
short period of time now most of the
time it means laugh out loud but until a
five if something is lol hahaha it just
means I'm laughing at that that's funny
lol but with the older generations like
my grandparents for example they think
that lol means lots of love so you'll
have to read the context depending on
who it's come from mostly it will mean
laughing but in some cases it'll mean
lots of love I'm sending you lots of
love ah let's go back to the nose we
have a whisper there I fell over and
everyone saw my knickers lol so and
Barriss so very wrong so embarrassed
and then you have LM a Oh laugh laugh my
ass off laugh my ass off Ln and that's
just even funnier so lol hahaha LOL m8
oh it's just bigger it's just a bigger
one and then you also have our Oh T f
lmao which is roll on the floor laughing
my ass off so that means it's super
funny it's so funny you're rolling
around on the floor
hahahaha okay what is knickers you know
our knickers is lots of other questions
in the chat room knickers are ladies
pants Underpants underwear so yeah then
we have these abbreviations of the word
thanks different people use different
ones but I think they're pretty
straightforward now this one I see a lot
this is rude oh let me just put the F
and I have somnus oh well then it's copy
it it's quick paste paste and paste yes
these are informal don't use these in a
formal situation it doesn't take much to
actually just write the word thanks
properly so so here we are
WTF what the when you're when you're
surprised at something in about if
something shocks you what is basically
that what did you say
really well you can't believe something
it's so shocking what the but it is a
swear word
so definitely is informal and I will
also in an informal situation be careful
who you use it with now if you ever see
this this is something that's come about
recently X 0 X 0 these mean hugs and
kisses hugs and kisses of course just
X's is kisses but xoxo is hugs and
kisses that's quite sweet isn't it
alright we got into
and here now so I'm gonna start adding
some in that I've seen from you guys RT
on Twitter means retweet so please
retweet this you might sometimes I saw
has written you a hand written letter C
swauk written on the back and it means
this letter was sealed with a loving
kiss sealed with a loving kiss just like
you've written a letter put it in the
envelope licked it sealed it and on mom
and then you send it out sealed with a
loving kiss I used to write that on the
back of mine - to write letters if it's
to a loved one of course you might also
hear the phrase or see it written tender
loving care tender loving care so you
might say I need lots of TLC so Anna

for myself I need lots of TLC please so
like this video probably needs some TLC

giving me a thumbs up let's have a look

time to start adding some additional
acronyms that I haven't yet used so
start firing away guys okay what have I

with a little dots in between do B that
equals date of birth so you'll see that

French and just means

something that I've never seen that has
anyone else seen this one shaking my

hi how are you you are very late we've
nearly finished but that's okay you can
always scroll back and re-watch the
lesson
okay so shake my hair shaking my head it
means that you can't believe what
