Internet Slang Vocabulary

The English language is constantly growing, developing and changing. Nowhere is this more true than on the Internet. There are new words phrases and acronyms being invented all of the time. Many of these disappear very quickly, but other stay and become part of the language, so it can be really useful to know these.

So today's activity comes from the Slang Translator and dictionary website. This activity is not appropriate for those under 18 years old.
