English[edit]

Etymology[edit]

"Kek" is the Korean approximation in English of laughter when typed on a Korean keyboard. Often used in Starcraft matches, Blizzard (Starcraft's developers) decided to pay tribute to this practice in World of Warcraft: when someone from the Horde side types "lol" using the /say messaging command, members of the Alliance side see "kek" instead.

Interjection[edit]
