Characteristics and variations[edit]

The informal set of rules that usually form internetês words includes: omitting easily distinguishable letters, mostly vowels; changing from velar "c" and "qu" to "k"; changing "from "ch" to "x"; changing ending of words from "ão" to "aum"; removing diacritics; changing from "o" to "u" and from "e" to "i"; adding the letter "h" in stressed syllables. (e.g., farão may become faraum, até may become ateh, cabeça may become kbça and te amo may become ti amu).[1]

Tiopês[edit]

The tiopês is an intentional and excessive use of internet slang and n00b behaviour. This is usually done by converting every word in a phrase using the informal rules above, among others. Additional characteristics include: changing ending of words from "ei" to "ay", imitating English phonology; use of "ee" and "oo", also imitating English phonology; changing letter order; adding and removing letters; adding diacritics; omitting spaces; capitalizing all letters to draw attention; changing from "?" to "/" and from "!" to "1". (e.g., o que é isso? may become Q IÇO/ and meu Deus may become meldels). Additionally, there are somewhat unexpected expressions such as shoray litrus (chorei litros, "I cried liters") and fikdik (fica a dica, "here comes the cue").[5]
