SMS en Français

Eric Bakovic of the always interesting Language Log posted a slideshow today, with seven pics of a ruler he saw in France that set out SMS abbreviations. The graphic below shows you the sort of thing I mean. (Click on it to go to his slideshow.)


My favourite is a+à plus tard — because I’ve convinced myself that the “+” that comes afterwards is “tard”.

Are any of these abbreviations used in Quebec?
