Urban Dictionary (or wtf does l33t mean?)

 

Category: Web Surfing

How many times did you see someone using a slang expression like QFT or FTW and wondered what on earth he is talking about? Well, someone came with the amazing idea of making a dictionary to help you.

Why do we need it?

With more and more people using the Internet, with more people using chat and forums, communities are popping up all over the web. With them, the need to communicate is of highest importance and with it the speed and style associated are changing.

What started as an AOL slang some years ago got used on all communities our days. Expressions like n00b, l33t and variations in all possible means are a common sight over the Internet these days.

OMG it's pr0n

Be it a 12 year guy that wants to sound different or just people that want to be different, slang language is on a continuing expansion. Words and abbreviations used in l33t slang or perhaps just funny looking or with a funny sound can be seen in communities, blogs and most of all over instant messaging.

And in this world full of slang, came the idea to make our life easier and gather all slang words in a dictionary.

Urban Dictionary

This is how Urban Dictionary was created. Easy to read, easy to find any term you might be looking for and most important, with a good explanation for all terms included (even examples) it tends to become a must for the ever expanding slang-flooded Internet.

And if you are tired of slang terms browsing, check out urban images ... a never ending source of fun.
