English[edit]

Etymology[edit]

Keke is the Korean equivalent of the English "haha". Since this is often used in StarCraft matches, Blizzard, Starcraft's developers, decided to reference it in World of Warcraft: when a player types "lol" using the /say messaging command, members of the opposing team see it as "kek".

      In feite is het verschil met bedelende zwervers niet heel groot, alleen zijn die meestal veel minder opdringerig en aanwezig. Een ander verschil is dat straatwervers vaak kekke meisjes en jongens zijn die bovendien zeggen dat je kapsel tof is en dat je een relaxt persoon lijkt.
