t netlingo changes constantly. The source of change is elementary/middle school boys and girls and then it percolates up. Change can also percolate down as well. Change also comes from certain corners of the internet but you wouldn’t want to see raw necessarily.

I stay away from those sources tongue emoticon tumblr, 4chan are sources that percolate their way out, imgur, meme sites, and there are others. Also, gaming culture has had a distinctive lingo ever since Halo and all first person shooter games in group chat use that language. The “dank memes” culture is a fascinating one.

I like lingo. I never master any of it, but I like understanding it as much as I can. But don’t feel bad – it’s ALWAYS changing.
