An Academic Look at I8I8 is defined as a cyber term because some of its characters are used as substitutes for letters. Many cyber terms were introduced to reduce the number of key strokes required to write words, but since the arrival of predictive texting and keyboards on mobile devices this efficiency is less important.
Cyber terms are still regularly used to make messages more entertaining or to express individuality. Cyber terms differ from icons because they are not pictorial representations of words.
I8 can be used as a standalone declarative sentence (i.e., a statement). In other words, it is not always used as another part of speech within a wider sentence.
