Explain your abbreviations

Abbreviations...that's what now a days most youngsters use. Not only in forums but in Text messages and even now a days during their school exams. I have seen example papers where kids wrote, you as in "u", and some other words which they cut down.

It has gone so advance that if you are not aware of them, you cannot make any sense out of it. It's almost like a new language to me.

Anyhow, not going into too much detail, the question for this thread is

What abbreviations you use and what is the meaning of it?

For example.

TNP - The next person (recently found out to be honest )
You - You
Etc

Regards

Ok... here are some

Dw= don't worry
Please = please
Atm = at the moment OR automatic teller machine LOL but usually the former!
Ppl = people
Lol = laugh out loud
2 = to/two/too

That's all I can think of atm (now you know what atm is )

I don't know a lot of English abbreviations so sometimes it can be hard or even impossible to understand if I have to read text which is full of them.

I often use
E.g.= for example
Etc.= et cetera
I still reckon that everyone know these.

And then

Irl = in real life (it's interesting that this abbreviation has been stabilized even in Finnish just like lol too. Although them are unofficial and normally only youngs use them).
Ttyl = talk to you later.

What about "reckon"? Does that abbreviated from somewhere?

Reckon means think. And I think it isn't an abbreviation. Maybe a little spoken language(?) but not an abbreviation.

Maybe some native English speaker could tell more about this.

I agree that is why I asked whether it is an abbreviation or some kind of slang word which people usually use.
