netspeak
Netspeak is a phrase created by David Crystal which is it is the name given to the type of communication used in chat rooms and in messaging software such as msn messenger. Since the nature of text taking longer to type than say, it had been used to reduce time and sometimes to save space provided in typing the text. In addition, it is sometimes very difficult to determine the tone of voice used by someone communicating through text.

A new way to communicate was required that would be faster to type and could be manipulated to include feeling to the words. The new language being netspeak. This language uses a combination of abbreviations (including words created using digits as well as alphabetic characters), acronyms and emoticons. Abbreviations and acronyms are used to speed up the typing of messages.
