What does L8ER stand for?


People may use "l8er" when texting or messaging online as a substitute for "later." For example, your friend may text you, "Not gonna make it to dinner, but I'll see you l8er at the movie."

The abbreviation is obscure since it barely qualifies (reduces the word by one letter) and is not as common as l8R. While anybody may use l8er, mostly netizens who love chat lingo use l8er when referring to something at a later time, like resuming a game or conversation or making dinner.
