What is knw short for?


Those who are asking for or imparting knowledge may shorten "know" to knw. This abbreviation is fairly basic text and chat speak, following the same vowel-erasure convention as tht, wld, cld, and hav.

Knw is used to ask questions ("Did u knw I love Becky?") and assert facts ("Every1 knws u luv Becky."). Because it does not contain an identifying "o" or "e," knw can also be used to mean "knew," know's past-tense form. Context should tell you whether someone knws something or knw something.
