Top definition
A dialect of typing that uses numbers and symbols to replace letters, and many misspellings. The name is a bastardization of "elite speak", as it was originally popularized to "look cool" and seperate one from word=noobnoobs/word.
Examples of such replacements used in leetspeak are: 1's or |'s for l's and/or i's, 5's or z's for s's, @'s or 4's for a's, \/\/'s for w's, etc. People who use l33tspeak usually have their own form, using their own combinations of replacements and misspellings.
A popular form of l33tsp33k uses random capitalizations of letters that are not (or cannot be, in some cases) replaced.
Nowadays computer geeks, and those who spend much of their day in word=chat roomchat rooms/word or word=forumforums/word will use intermittent l33tsp33k to joke around with one another; true l33tsp33kers are rarely seen around the internet anymore.

l33tspeek is a term that came about with the early hacker, sometimes called elite speak. Someone who spells in l33tsp33k with pride is someone who can type it as fast as normal words. There are many other spellings, such as the number based 13375P33|< or the rarely seen |337zp33|{.
7|-|15 |5 3><7R3/\/\3 |3375P33|{

Translation: This is extreme l33tsp33k
Notice that there are only two actual characters used, r and p.
