A list of Texting codes on chat and Mobile Phones & their meaning.




Obvi: This one should be obvious.

On fleek/On point: Used asan adjective,thesetwo terms both mean impeccably styled or groomed. So, which should you use? On fleek was added to Random House's Dictionary.com last year, but logophiles think Merriam-Webster is totally on point (and recognizes neither). Ultimately, you should use neither, because you're not 17.

OTP: An acronym for "one true pairing" it means the fictional couple you think were meant to be together, despite their will-they/won't-they history. For instance, you could say, "Pacey and Joey are my OTP," but only if you want to sound really old and out of touch.

Slay: Short for doing something very well, "slay" is shorthand for slaying, which is a synonym of kill. So, in other words, killing it, only six characters shorter, thus easier on the Twitter.

Ship: As a noun, "ship" is short for a romantic relationship. As a verb, it means wanting a romantic relationship. But because it's spoken by teens (who have a hard time grappling with their own awkward feelings) it's mainly used in fictional terms. For instance, "I ship Ron and Hermione so hard."

Snatched: 2016's version of "on fleek" and "on point." Presented with a third option, which should you use? Again, none. You people already killed "on fleek." Can't you just leave "snatched" alone?

SMH: An acronym for "shake my head," it's what teens will say about you if you use their slang. For instance: "Woman just said my outfit was on fleek. Smh."

Swipe right: Derived from the user interface of the popular hook-up app Tinder, "swipe right" is a term of approval.

TBH: An acronym for "to be honest," this term evolved into a game on Facebook. Users post "Like this status for a TBH," and then leave previously unrevealed truths in the comment fields for all their friends who like the post.

Turnt/Turnt Up: Similar to "Lit," these adjectives describe a particularly loud, lively affair, or being inebriated, or both. Reddit users have discussed the etymology of the term, linking it to songs by Soulja Boy, among other sources. Tbh, It likely started with Spinal Tap's Nigel Tufnel turning his amp up to 11.

V: Short for "very," as in "I type v fast." So fast that the e, r, and y just get in the way.

YAS: A very enthusiastic version of yes, "YAS" should not be confused with YAZ, a contraceptive which in other words means "no."

You da real MVP: A meme that basically thanks people for doing seemingly mundane but important tasks, this term taken from the 2014 NBA MVP speech of Kevin Durant, who saluted his mother was "da real MVP." Here's an example:
