(v.) To act and speak as if you are the character you're portraying. To roleplay is as much about what not to say as what TO say. It means to keep your speech in the context of the setting in which your character (or avatar) exists. Context can be defined as both time and place.

Most roleplaying that occurs is in an online setting, such as an online game, a chat room, or a message board.

(adj.) A setting in which the act of roleplaying is strongly encouraged, or even enforced.
(v.) "Do you like to roleplay?" or "I'm trying to learn how to properly roleplay my character."

(adj.) "What are the rules on this roleplay server?" or "This is strictly a roleplay chat room."

Roleplay (or roleplaying) nazi. Someone, usually in an online setting such as a MMORPG, MUD, or MUSH, who tries to impose excessively strict, yet often nebulous definitions of roleplaying on others.

Often times, a RP nazi rarely takes part in roleplaying themselves. They usually just watch for other people to slip out of character in the wrong context so they can pounce on them. A RP nazi is essentially a self-appointed verbal fascist.
