Abbreviations in colloquial English

Posted on: 3. January 2010

Abbreviations in English are quite common. The most well-known is probably ASAP, which means “as soon as possible”, and is used in commercial English as well as in the colloquial language. Still there are some more, which we discussed in our club at one of our meetings.

  • IMHO is used very much in chats, and it means “in my humble opinion”.
  • MISAS means “make it short and simple”
  • KITA is not very nice and classed as very rude. It means “kick in the ass”.
  • SAE is mainly used in commercial English and means “stamped addressed envelope”.

If you know any more, why don´t you write a comment to let us know? Or join one of our meetings on Tuesdays at 7:30 p.m. in Berlin-Kreuzberg. You can be assured to get a warm welcome by all of us.
