apostrophes not being used

the "g" isn't added at the end of words that end in "ing"
wtf=what the fuck
the word of can be used instead of have in sentences like " I would of done this"

the word "of" is used instead "have" when saying "I would have"

w/u? = what's up?
nmh = nothing much here

imma = same as 'ima' on your list, though I usually see it with two Ms
usu = usually
4E = forever
TL4E = true love forever (hahaha, do people still use that one?)

bbq = barbeque, added to the ends of things like: WTFBBQ, just because it looks funny
plz = same as pls which is please
h = oftentimes replaces a final 'r' (later -> latah) - can cause word mutations...
z = can replace a final 's', or can be added to other words for no reason (later -> latahz)
teh = the (sometimes intentionally misspelled)
internets, interwebz = internet
moar = more
no wei = no way

4 = for
gr8 = great
o rly? = oh really?
If "by" or (bi) is said alone it means "goodbye"
letters can be repeated (byee)
If "an" is said in the right context it can mean "and"
(I think that's all the ones you need to know when chatting with someone on the net but I'll add any more if I think of any more)
