    'meh' was chosen to be inducted to the Collins English Dictionary for their 30th anniversary, showing how texting and internet culture are starting to popularize new terms enough to be considered proper English.

    You have to remember that the english lanuagae has been changing a lot over the years. Just read Shakespear and see how much it has changed since then.

    I'm having a hard time figuring out what you're trying to say here. Meh isn't an abbreviation at all. It's just a word to describe a feeling of indifference or mediocrity.

    "What did you think of the new Bond movie?" "Meh, not as good as the last one"

    "How are you feeling today?" "meh"

    The difference between 'meh' and everything else you listed is that it isn't just used in type. People actually SAY 'meh' out loud, and that's why it can be considered a word. Everything else is just shorthand to save typing of common phrases, but 'meh' has a whole new definition.

    Today's Overcompensating addressed this. I'd post the link but I just signed up and can't post links.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ I can only imagine the horror of my college English professor, and the comparative glee of my high school English teacher, the latter of the two being the smarter.
