Initialism & Why It's Important to Understand
We've all come across a form of initialism at some point in time, and not everyone has had the opportunity to learn just what those initials stand for..
The misuse or misunderstanding of these initialisms can lead to confusing situations in some cases.
With the world we currently live in, initialism is becoming more and more popular everyday. That's why I'm here today, to help others get a better understanding of what these sets of initials mean and when people tend to use them.
First off I would like to share with you a story of my own experience as to why I feel it's important to be able to recognize and understand these different initialisms, after my story I will try my best to list out most of the initialisms I know to help you as an audience get a better understanding.
A while back I was over at my mothers house for dinner, and maybe halfway through dinner my mother had asked me if my aunt had messaged me at all lately. Me being confused I asked her why she was wondering about something so random? She begins to tell me that she'd sent my aunt numerous messages over the past few days but for some odd reason she wasn't answering. I then asked what was the last thing my aunt replied to her about? My mother answers with "well she'd just told me that her friend had passed away a few days prior, so I said 'Oh my god lots of love dana' and she hasn't replied to me since".. Me being curious as I am I asked if I could see the message because I was confused as well, when she showed me the message is when I realized why my aunt never replied.. The message was typed out as "OMG, LOL Dana"
Had my mother known that LOL means Laugh Out Loud and not Lots Of Love maybe my aunt and her would still be talking today!
Now you can kind of understand from a different point of view why it is so important to stay up to date with these new trends that seem to cross the world in days time.
