I posted this on facebook, but only a few of my facebook fans actually see any of my posts, so I’m putting this here too.
I could use your help!
I want to put together a post (which might become a page, if it works well) of various language codes used by general society. Some examples would be the “high, how are you?” ritual, which actually means “Hi, I acknowledge you as a person!” Or one I’ve only learned fairly recently: “I want to get to know you” is code for “I want to get into your pants/date you/etc.” I am from the US, so I don’t know if these are codes in other parts of the world.
Would you tell me any codes that you know, along with their translation, and the region of the world that it’s used in?
