知っていると便利な携帯等で使う英略語

英子の暮らすニュージーランドでも、携帯電話によるテキストメッセージの送信(TXT Messaging)が、若い人たちの間を中心に大流行しています。160文字までは20セントで送信出来たりと、料金も手頃なので、携帯電話を利用する際に、直接会話をするのではなく、テキストメッセージでやりとりをする人たちが増えています。

日本でも、携帯メールで入力時間を短縮する為に、特別な略語が使われていると聞いたことがありますが、英語での携帯メッセージでも同様に、省略形が使われています。

この英語の省略形、海外の人たちとやりとりをする時に、知っていると便利だったり、日本語のメッセージの中で利用してみても良いのではないかと、携帯電話やコンピューターのテキストメッセージで利用されている英略語の一覧表を作ってみました。

英語圏の中でも、国や地方によって使われている省略形が違っていたり、特定グループの中で流行りの略語があったりもするようです。実際に使用する場合には、送る側も、受け取る側も、正しい意味を理解していること(同じ意味で使っていること)を事前に確認した方がいいかも知れませんね。

…下記の英略語を参照される場合は、同じ省略形が下記とは違う意味で使われていることがあったり、友達同士など、親しい間柄でのみで使われているものや、ジョークとして使われている単語も含まれていることに注意して下さい。
