An Academic Look at IH8UIH8U is defined as a cyber term because some of its characters are used as substitutes for letters. Many cyber terms were created to reduce the number of key strokes needed to write words, but since the arrival of predictive texting and keyboards on mobile devices this saving is less important.
Cyber terms are still regularly used to make messages more intertesting or to show individuality. Cyber terms differ from icons because they are not pictorial representations of words.
IH8U can be used as a standalone declarative sentence (i.e., a statement). In other words, it is not always used as another part of speech within a wider sentence.
