Abstract

Lingo is an emerging language on the Internet. Providing a standardized definition remains difficult due to continuous changes made to its nature. We proposed Tranzzl!n9o, a crossword puzzle game for engaging crowds to translate Internet lingo. Players provide explanations for lingo in parallel and iteratively verify the explanations from other players. Crowd-sourced translations are very informative containing explanations as well as lingo usage.
