K/que

Hola

¿Se usa 'k' en lugar de 'que' cuando escribiendo rapidamente?

Miraba muchas frases con 'k', las cual me han dado mucho desconcierto

Quote:
es la cancion mas bonita k (que) he oido
Tambien, me parece que escritores españoles no tienen el tiempo para escriber las letras silenciosas



Gracias
Bob

No, you must write the word Que is more correct than the other one, only the word K is used as an idiom in Spanish between the chat rooms.

You're welcome.

I have understood that the word meaning Jerga.

But I'm not very sure in that meaning sorry.

También, me parece que escritores españoles los que escriben en español/las personas que escriben en español no tienen el tiempo para escribir (watch out for this verb) las letras silenciosas mudas.

*"Escritores" is only used for professional writers. And those obviously don't make spelling mistakes.

Gracias

SMS language has created its own abbreviations in every tongue. In spanish many people started replacing "qu" with "k". The original shortened form of "que" was "ke", but lately people use only "k", even though it doesn't even have the same sound.

It can be "argot", "jerga" (as Crotalito suggested), "lenguaje de SMS"...

A little off topic, but it's funny becuase it reminded me of this. When my g/f asks me something, but I don't quite hear her or don't understand, I'll say "¿Que?", but it throws her off because that sounds like "'kay", as in short for "okay".

I've started using "Что" instead.

As you have said the word K is used when is cut the word Ok in some chat rooms, but it's is one informal style, sometimes in the chat room are places where you learn much idioms in severals languages, and well the English and Spanish is not the different.


Sometimes that idioms are one great struggle to understand them, because as you aren't unfamiliar with them, therefore you can't understand them sometimes and sometimes you can do it.

If you want to pronounce que in a better way visualize this "queh" and say it while reading it.

Tell me if it works for you.

In a sentence that doesn't end on the work, when I say "Que" it does sound like "Queh".

The part that makes it sound like "'Kay" is the rising inflection indicating it's a question. But, ironically, that's also the part that lets her figure out I'm saying "¿Que?" instead. It just is close enough that she usually has to pause for a second before she figures it out.
