Leetspeek, or leet for short (a vernacular form of "elite") is a specific type of computer slang where a user replaces regular letters with other keyboard characters to form words phonetically—creating the digital equivalent of pig Latin with a twist of hieroglyphics. Numbers are often used as letters. Non-alphabet characters can be used to replace the letters they resemble. Letters can be substituted for other letters that may sound alike.
