An Academic Look at 2M

2M is defined as an "internet slang term" by our team because some of its characters are used as substitutes for letters. Most "slang terms" were introduced to reduce the number of key strokes required to write the word, but since the arrival of predictive texting and keyboards on mobile devices, this efficiency is no longer required. Nevertheless, "slang terms" are still regularly used to make messages more entertaining or to express individuality. "Slang terms" differ from icons because they are not pictorial representations.

2M is typically used as an adverb of time. An adverb of time modifies a verb to describe when the verb occurs. For example: "We'll be arriving 2M." (Here, 2M emphasizes that the verb (arriving) will be occurring in the future (tomorrow).)

What Did We Say before Texting and Social Media?

Before the digital era, we would have just written "tomorrow" instead of using the internet slang term 2M.
