When it comes to bingo chat rooms you may find that the language used can be a bit confusing when you are a new player to a site as you will find many words are abbreviated and you can’t quite grasp what is being said. Well this whole new language could be known as ‘Binglish’, the new English for bingo chat rooms.
Binglish, a cross between English and the language used in a bingo chat room, is not too hard to pick up when you enter a room and many of the players who have been enjoying internet bingo for a while will always explain what the abbreviations used mean and Binglish soon becomes clear to even the most novice of online bingo players.
When you look at the Binglish used in any of the bingo chat rooms you will notice that it’s like a universal language used at all bingo sites. The list of abbreviations used is similar at any bingo site and it’s really easy to pick up; you might even find a lot are used on social networking sites and instant chat messengers the world over. However some of the Binglish used is quite obviously only used in bingo chat rooms.
Examples of Binglish:
WTG – way to go – a congratulatory abbreviation used for winners
1TG, 2TG, 3TG – one number to go, two numbers to go, three numbers to go – a way of letting other players know how close you are to winning bingo
TY – thank you – used to thank other players for their Binglish WTG’s
GL – Good luck – used to wish all other internet bingo players luck
So are we likely to see Binglish in the Oxford Dictionary? Who knows, it could well happen, it’s already listed in the Urban Dictionary although neither versions relate to bingo online and we can’t see Binglish becoming popular in land based bingo halls!
