What does lol mean?
Recently, Internet slang is replete with various abbreviations that are not understandable to everyone. What does lol mean? This is an abbreviation used in online communities, which means fun and laughter. It is abbreviated from the phrases “lot of laugh” - a sea of laughter or “laughing out loud” - I laugh very loudly.
In Russian, it has already been translated, but left to sound also - lol, the meaning doesn't change. Those who are lazy to switch the keyboard layout to the Latin, instead of lol, use the letter Y, since it looks like the same abbreviation.
If you communicate with an avid player in online games, do not confuse just lol and LoL, since the second is an abbreviation for the name of the game League of Legends. So watch what lol means in the context of your communication and how it is written. The most interesting thing is that such similar slang abbreviations as lol and ololo, depending on the context, can carry a completely different semantic meaning. Ololo means wild laughter, hysteria, terribly positive emotions, irony, surprise and even insult. It all depends on the situation in which the given "word" is used.
lol or lol can be a reaction to a funny phrase, express a pleasant surprise, but for someone it is a whole storm of emotions.
Someone uses it with sarcasm, and someone does not hesitate to use it in ordinary speech, which looks very funny when a person in fact says that he laughs loudly, keeping the external imperturbability. However, for those who are shy of their laughter, to replace this laughter with a designation can be a way out, describing their reaction with the word lol (I find it funny).
