LOLV is an initialism abbreviation. This means it is pronounced using its individual letters (i.e., Ell Oh Ell Vee). Initialisms contrast with acronyms, which are spoken like words. LOLV can be used as a standalone declarative sentence (i.e., a statement). In other words, it is not necessarily used as another part of speech within a wider sentence. For example, when closing a conversation.
