SMS Abbreviations

This pub quiz handout round lists 15 abbreviations that are used in mobile phone text messaging, and internet-based communication such as email and instant messaging. The aim is to expand on these to give the full phrases that they are most commonly used as being short for. For example, the correct answer to "IOW" is "in other words".

The information in this round could be used to make up standard question and answer rounds (where the quiz-master asks questions aloud and the teams write the answers on blank answer sheets), but it is presented so that it can also be used as a handout round. You can find more information on handout rounds and our recommended use for them in quizzes on our handout rounds page. 

If you buy this handout round, we will give you access to pdf files you can download. This will include both the versions mentioned above, with one pdf file for each as illustrated above, and one for each in a more plain format. A fifth sheet will contain the answers. You probably already have everything you need to access and use these rounds in your quiz, but you might want to check our requirements page to make sure.
