What Does 517 Mean in a Text?

In a text, the numbers 517 mean "I want to eat." If you were to read these numbers in Chinese, they would sound similar to the Chinese words 我要吃, which translate as "I want to eat."

Lots of Chinese words sound similar to the Chinese numbers. As a result, sentences can be created using just numbers. Of note, the number "0" (zero), which is used to represent the word "you," does not sound much like the Chinese word for "you," but it is still used so meaningful sentences can be created. These Chinese chat codes have become highly popular, not only in countries where Chinese characters are used but also in countries with different alphabets (e.g., Latin, Arabic, Cyrillic).
