What Does WAML Mean in a Text?

Expressing Love in a Text

There are over 100 novel ways to express love in a text message. Some of them were invented by the iKids (i.e., Millennials, Generation Z, and Generation A), making them just a few decades old, but many of them have been around for centuries. Here's the one that matters to you: WAML means "With All My Love."

An Academic Look at WAML

WAML is an adverbial phrase. Adverbs give additional information about the time, manner or place of the action described in the rest of the sentence. WAML is an initialism abbreviation. Technically, this means it is pronounced using its individual letters (i.e., "Dblyoo Ay Em El"), but it is not spoken using its letters. It is for efficiency in writing and not efficiency in speech.
