"Awsl, as a high-frequency vocabulary used by young people, is the result of a certain fixed ideographic demand changing among young people." Gao Hanning said, "and the Pinyin acronym of catchwords has always been a high-frequency vocabulary in bullet screen video websites. It matches the characteristics of barrage culture, such as timeliness, impromptu release and short stay time. '
