Different meanings for different situations can make this slang term confusing asl
So, What Does ASL Mean?
In its most common usage, asl is an abbreviation for as hell, meaning extremely. When you say as hell quickly, it sounds like asl.
Asl is used for emphasis after an adjective to indicate that someone or something is extremely as described, e.g funny asl, crazy asl, cool asl.
It is used in texting, on messaging apps such as Kik, WhatsApp and Snapchat, and on social media such as Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
ASL has a different definition when used in chat sites such as Omegle. In this context, ASL stands for Age, Sex, Location? It is used as a question, and is a conversation opener to find out the age, gender and general location of the person you are chatting to.
ASL is the online chat equivalent to a handshake and introduction. Since chat site users aren’t supposed to disclose names, their age, sex and location serve as their identifying information instead. Some people do use it though to help them decide whether to make sexual advances.
