    Weird words on 997 rennteamers posts?

    If you knew how many hours I spend on my french-english dicationary to understand the subtlety of the arguments in your posts!
    But here are a few weird words and abbreviations I don't find in my dictionary
    Would you be so kind to explain me following words and abbreviations?
    IMO might be in my opinion, but what means IMHO?
    AFAIK
    IOW
    MITA
    PITA
    FWIW
    LOL
    Gotta
    Gotcha

    Thanks
    Carlos

    Re: Weird words on 997 rennteamers posts?

    lol=laugh out loud

    Re: Weird words on 997 rennteamers posts?

    IMHO; in my humble opinion
    gotcha; i've got you?

    Re: Weird words on 997 rennteamers posts?

    Hello Carlos. I think I've got the answer to most of your questions.

    IMHO = In My Humble Opinion
    AFAIK = As Far As I Know
    IOW = In Other Words
    PITA = Pain In The Rear
    FWIW = For What It's Worth

    Gotta = got to. See also: "gonna" (going to)
    Gotcha = "got you". This word has three main meanings: as an answer: "Understood"; as an expletive: "I've finally caught/hit you!" ((in)famous example: the Sun headline after the British Royal Navy sunk the Argentinian warship General Belgrano); as a noun: "gimmick" or "catch" ("Only 10 dollars? Where's the gotcha?")

    MITA = ?

    Re: Weird words on 997 rennteamers posts?

    Gotcha = very idiomatic. Literally, "Got you". Pronounced, "got cha"; Cha like "cha cha" the dance.

    Example: You fool, you thought I was serious about saying your exhaust was on fire! Gotcha!

    In this case, I caught you with a joke that you didn't get, so I got you (or gotcha).

    You could probably make a fortune by publishing this "internet abbreviations" dictionary. I've never seen such a comprehensive collection of definitions before yours.

    That's overkill, but entertaining.

    You still missed MITA though!

    I'll have to print it out soon as I've checked my printer has enough ink in it.

    I think one interpretation was overlooked, namely:

    AAA = 10% discount at many US hotels, motels, and Disneyworld.

    what he said (I agree with what the previous speaker just said).

    and

    yoo da main ("You are The Man" i.e. I agree with and very much enjoyed with what you just said, or what you just did)

    Come to think of it, RTFM is really my favorite - I just forgot about it. It could be used so often on the forum!

    BTW I'm sure VKSF is the author of MMD's dictionary

    FWIW IMHO

    I nominate MMD for the "Longest Posting" award.

    Parlons simplement français, les choses seront comprises immédiatement ...

    En plus, en français, il n'existe pas toutes ces abréviations ridicules.

    British english? I thought the official language of Rennteam was American english. There are just too many misspelled words and wierd meanings with British english.

    Who or what is ZiffNeT? The Ziff that appeared in The Simpsons?

    Re: Weird words on 997 rennteamers posts?

    American English? With all due respect to you Sir, I think you are unfortunately mistaken. No such language exists separately from the English language spoken in England or anywhere else in the English speaking World.

    Languages obviously consist of far more than just vocabulary. Grammar, syntax, punctuation, idiom are part and parcel of this all.

    What does exist is an alternative US dictionary containing American spellings of English words.

    This problem appears to be a linguistic misconception/fallacy perpetuated and compounded by peoples' use of word-processing applications like MS Word which always refer to 'American English'.

    Re: Weird words on 997 rennteamers posts?

    I knew my phrase would steer up some patriotism

    Re: Weird words on 997 rennteamers posts?


    Yes indeed, mais adopter le francais comme langue officielle de rennteam ne semble pas remporter beaucoup de suffrages.... dommage.

    Re: Weird words on 997 rennteamers posts?

    Ok..je m'y met donc aussi.
    Dorénavant chaque envois DOIT être rédigé en français et sans abréviations. Le français deviendra à nouveau la langue universelle.....celle de la culture, de la...
