Guide to German Internet Slang for Beginners

German learners—from beginners to specialists (Profis)—have diverse levels of engagement with the World Wide Web (weltweites Netz) and this will definitely influence your vernacular requirements to certain degree. You should give prominence for German Internet slang. If you use it as a brand new communication tool, then it will take your reading and writing to new heights.

It is a fact that there are a number of German slangs. The below given guide to German Internet slang will lend a hand to explore the German Interwebz. The expertise in German internet slang will really be handy for modern leaners, as they go for German Language Classes.

Abkürzung

Similar to English language, many German Internet slang contains an Abkürzung (abbreviation) of an expression or group of words, every so often made from the first letters of each.

BD

It is the German equivalent of CUL8R and here BD stands for Bis dann (’til then).

Chatsprache

The broad umbrella word for your online colloquial activity in all forms and methods—or, to keep it just, “chat lingo”!

FG

FG is the shortened form of   freches Grinsen, fettes Grinsen or fieses Grinsen.

ILD

ILD stands for Ich liebe dich (I love you).

kD

kein Ding. This exactly interprets as “no thing,” but gives the meaning “don’t worry” or “no problem.”

kA

It gives the meaning “no idea,” as in “I have no idea.”

mMn

It is not a sound that gives the meaning “sounds delicious”, but in its place it stands for meiner Meinung nach (in my opinion).

OK

Certainly, this one is easy to understand, Germans have a habit of using “OK” along with the rest of the sphere, however alles klar (factually, all clear) would be more exactly a German translation.

PLZ

PLZ stands for Bitte, i.e., “please.”

vlt / vllt

Vielleicht (maybe)

WD

wieder da (back again).

WE

Wochenende (weekend).

W-LAN

Wi-fi

XOXO

Küsse und Umarmungen (kisses and hugs).

Y                                                           

Warum? (why?)
