Sucking My Teeth

On social media and in chat forums, SMT usually means "Sucking My Teeth." It refers to a gesture or sound made by clicking the tongue off the roof of the mouth. In spoken conversation, it's commonly used as a non-verbal expression of annoyance, impatience, disapproval, or frustration. However, it is also very likely to be used as a theatrical gesture, employed humorously. For example:

  • Jo: Can you lend me $25 until Friday?
  • Sam: SMT.
  • Jo: Why are you sucking your teeth?
  • Sam: Have you really forgotten that I loaned you $50 last week and you were going to pay me back today?

Something

SMT is also used as an abbreviation of the word "something." In this context, it is usually written in lower case. For example:
  • I need to tell you smt.
  • Can you do smt for me?

Send Me There

SMT is used with the meaning "Send Me There" to indicate that the sender wants to be somewhere. It is typically sent as an accompaniment to an image of an exotic or luxurious location, or in response to something that someone has said in a message or posted on social media. For example:

  • Jordan: The desserts at Bob & Bert's are to die for!
  • Chris: SMT, now!

SM Town

Among K-Pop fans, SMT usually means SM Town, which refers to the collective name for the recording artists under South Korean entertainment company SM Entertainment, one of the largest entertainment companies in South Korea. More specifically it refers to the artists and groups under SM Entertainment coming together for various projects, including concerts, albums, and other collaborative endeavors.

Simultaneous Multi-Threading

In computing and online gaming, SMT is a technique for improving the efficiency of a CPU (Central Processing Unit). It is the process by which a CPU doubles parts of the core, in order to allow each core to run two instruction streams at the same time. It may not match the quality provided by having a greater number of physical cores, but it speeds up the CPU, whilst keeping manufacturing costs down.

  • Lee: Have you disabled the SMT?
  • Ali: Yeah. Made no difference that I could see.

An Academic Look at SMT

SMT is typically used as an initialism abbreviation, as it is pronounced one letter at a time. However, when used with the meaning "something," it is a contraction. Contractions can be formed in a number of ways, including:
  • Omitting letters from the word (e.g., pct (percent), obv (obviously)).
  • Using letters from the start and end of the word (e.g., adds, Dr (Doctor)).
  • Using an apostrophe to replace a letter or letters (e.g., don't (do not), can't (cannot)).
