Laughing on the Internet

網路笑聲

There are many different ways to laugh in real life. Why not show this on the Internet as well? These days Internet slang has changed the way we show laughter.

Elem32-01現實生活中有許多不同的方式可以表達笑聲。那為何不也在網上表達出來呢?現今的網路用語改變了我們表達笑聲的方式。

 

The most common way to express laughter online is by typing “LOL.” LOL means “laughing out loud,” and Internet users have been using it for a long time. Today LOL has many versions: lulz, lawl, and even LOLOLOL. LOLOLOL is like LOL, but it’s stronger. It means that the person is laughing more!

網路上最常見的表達笑聲用語是「LOL」。LOL表示「放聲大笑」,是網路使用者使用最久的用法。今天LOL有許多版本:Lulz,Lawl,甚至LOLOLOL。LOLOLOL就像是LOL,但是強度更高。這表示這個人笑得更大聲!

 

Elem32-02Another way to show laughter is by typing “haha.” This word expresses the sound of someone’s laugh. Some shorter forms are heh, hah, and ha. These show that a person is a little bit amused. An Internet user can also type “HAHAHA” to add strength to the laugh.

其他表示笑聲的方式是輸入「Haha」。這單字是表達一個人大笑的聲音。有些較簡短的形式是Heh,Hah和Ha。這些表示一個人有點開心。網路使用者也可以輸入「HAHAHA」來加強大笑的強度.

 

A final way people laugh on the Internet is by using emoji. Emoji are little yellow smiley faces that have a lot of expressions. There is a crying-laughter emoji that people use when something is very funny.

最後一種網路笑聲的表達是利用Emoji(表情圖案)。Emoji是有著很多種表情的黃色小臉。有一種笑到哭的Emoji是人們遇到非常好笑的事情時使用的。
