Text Message: List of Abbreviations, Shorthand, and Acronyms

A text message, commonly referred to as texting, occurs when a brief electronic message is sent over a cellular network often in shorthand, e.g., “TY” for thank you.

List of Text Abbreviations, Shorthand and Acronyms

Keep your text messaging communication brief and concise by using shorthand, abbreviations and/or acronyms. These shorten words omit letters or replace with letters and symbols to spell longer words; ultimately they require less key strokes. Our table below contains over 1,500 kid friendly ways to communicate via a text message. Please utilize our search bar to narrow your results.
