An Academic Look at QQ4U

QQ4U is typically used as a declarative sentence (i.e., a statement) with the meaning "I have a quick question for you." It can, however, be used as an interrogative sentence (i.e., a question) with the meaning "Can I ask you a quick question?"

Of note, QQ4U is defined as a cyber term (as opposed to an abbreviation) because the "4" is a homonym of "four." Most cyber terms were introduced to reduce the number of key strokes required to write the word, but since the arrival of predictive texting and keyboards on mobile devices, this efficiency is no longer required. Nevertheless, cyber terms are still regularly used to make messages more entertaining or to express individuality. Cyber terms also differ from icons because they are not pictorial representations.
