An acronym for "love you like a brother/sister" used for close friends for whom you feel a sibling-like bond. Often found in emails, text messaging, etc. Pronounced "LEE-LAS" or "LEE-LAB". Can be modified to fit certain situations,e.g "LYLAPG" for "Love you like a pet goldfish", etc. Also known as simply "Lyla" as a shortened version.
This word was invented by a group of friends in southern New Hampshire, to explain feeling sisterly or brotherly love without actually having to say the entire sentence.
Other word forms: Love You Sister-Wise, Love you Brother-wise.
