The Leet Alphabet (Including Digraphs)

Leet (sometimes translated as "1337"), also known as eleet or leetspeak, is another alphabet in the combination of letters, numbers and symbols, for the English language but can be used with other languages including Filipino (or Tagalog) the official national language of the Philippines. Every other article about leet alphabet have a different graphical letter on the list of their letters, 'cause there's no official alphabet for 1337. Every leet alphabet on every other article, have their own version of graphical alphabet. A digraph are a pair of characters used together to represent a single sound that doesn't correspond to the normal values of the two or more characters combined, such as "oh" in English. Some languages including Filipino, digraph is considered an individual letter which means that they have their own place in the alphabet. The version of our leet alphabet are the only version that have included the digraphs of leet, such as CK, CKS, KW, PH and XX. These are the list of the graphical letters of our leet!

20 Steps to Writing and Reading in Leet

Learn to encode a text by substituting letters with numbers & symbols, adding or changing the suffix of the words therein, and abbreviating or shortening & misspelling them.
  1. Changing the alphabet, especially the vowels, with numbers & symbols. For example, the word "Leet" will be written as 1337. Just write in graphical text like emoticons, such as :) happy and :( sad smileys.
  2. Some new Leetspeakers write a text in right capitalization, such as '|'hè f!rs+ |è++èr !n +h!s sèn+ènçé !s b!9. But in leet, there's no capitalization! Whether there's a big and small letters on a word, such as \/\/o|2d. Unless it can understand by leetspeakers, it doesn't matter!
  3. There's no official alphabet. So, you can create your own style of graphical text. Just do not include (;) semicolon, ([) left and (]) right square brackets, (<) less and (>) greater-than signs because these can be the cause of error on some text editors.
  4. Misspelling a word, just make it sounds like the word that you're trying to imitate. Just like the letter S, mostly on plural suffix, can be replaced by Z, neither Z replaced by S. For example, HATS will become HATZ and QUIZ can spelled as QUIS. S and Z are parallel.
  5. One of the two pupular groups of 2 or 3 letters that parallel to a single letter or 2 letters, but still sounds as what as they are, is the CKS which is parallel to X or XX. But if it's just CK without the S, it is just parallel only to X. So, the word "rocks" can spelled as ROX or ROXX. But the singular word "hack" will be just HAX. Try to read "53Ç|{5", note that the Ç|{5 is sounds as }{.
  6. Likewise the second of the two popular groups of 2 letters which is parallel to a single letter. The PH who's parallel to letter F. For example, FEAR can spelled as PHEAR, and PHILIPPINES can be translated as FILIPPINES. Just remember to write it in Leet, in graphical text as 1337.
  7. Change the -ER suffix into -OR or -AH. For example, the word "hacker" may spelled as |-|4}{0|2, because HACK- is translated to HAX- and the -ER therein become -OR. The other word "master" will become MASTAH.
  8. You can remove a silent letter on any word. For example, you can write "wat" as WHAT, and "wen" as WHEN. Neither you can add a silent letter to any word as a pronunciation style, such as FHIRE, WHATER, YHIN and YHANG.
