L33t (pronounced "leet") is an Internet language that uses numbers in place of letters, sometimes using a combination of numbers to replace all letters in a word. Leet is derived from the word elite (3£173, €£¡7€) and English-based.
Today, l33t is used as a method of showing that one is familiar with computers and Internet culture. However, it would be best that Old People refrain from communicating through this language. In addition to using numbers and symbols for letters, l33t has created some of its own words and suffixes. They are...
-age is used in the same way it would be in the English language, but with more veracity.
'd and "t" for "-ed"
Ex: pwnd or pwnt
The essence of [something]. -ness is used in the same way it would be in the English language, but with more fervor, and with words that are not commonly accepted of having -ness as a suffix.
-xor and -zor for "r" or "er"
Ex: roxor (roxxor), suckzor (usually for "sucks" not "sucker")
This is used as emphasis. Ex: r0ckz0rz, lolzorz
n00b, a "newbie" or inexperienced person (an Old Person)
pwn (pronounced "pown", not "pween"), "to own" (in the slang sense of owning something) or dominate
warez software, usually pirated
