Post Acronyms and Lingo peculiar to EDMW - come to main thread and vote!

EDMW Glossary - A to D

(For E to J, see Post #2)
(For K to P, see Post #3)
(For Q to V, see Post #4)
(For W to Z, see Post #5)

A list of the unique (or weird ) acronyms and lingo used by EDMWers.

Warning : Usage outside of EDMW will probably make you sound like a moron and kena ridicule jialak jialak...

This collection now has a total of 285 terms!

**************************************************
General tips for understanding EDMWish :

1. Replace the letter "L" with the letter "R" and pronounce accordingly.
eg. Look -> Rook, Lock -> Rock, Plus -> Prus

2. Add the letter "S" in front of words that start with "ex".
eg. Expose -> Sexpose, Experience -> Sexperience

3. Spell the word backwards.
eg. Slow -> Wols

4. Many terms are simply mispronounced words and spelled to reflect that pronunciation.
Just say the word out loud and you will probably know what it means.
It helps alot if you understand hokkien.
eg. Why -> Huai, What -> Huat, Is -> Ish, Clone -> Krone
