What is tht short for?


Many people save time and space by abbreviating "that" to tht in text messages, online chat, and social media posts. Tht is just as readable without its "a," so no one tends to miss the extraneous vowel.

The practice of removing a word's vowels actually has a wonderfully evocative name: Disemvoweling. Because reading disemvoweled words requires little extra effort, people disemvowel many simple words they send in text and chat messages. This saves senders time, but maybe they'd think twice if they held words in the same regard they held people.


Have u seen tht new horror movie yet?
You mean the one where they disemvowel people?

And tht's even better
