- 'Sup (Words, Sayings, and Slogans)
"I'm not acknowledging that."
Instead of saying to Veronica, "What's up?" Keith tries to be cool (and fails). "'Sup?" is a prime example of an elision, a word or phrase which is truncated by eliminating syllables, clearly the basis for the appearance of "ROFL" and "WTF" and "U R kewl." This is how busy we as a society have become. In the olden days, entire words and sentences were spoken. Contractions soon followed. Now we're eliminating syllables and chunks of written words. What's next? We can't get rid of much more.
