Word of the Week: Shouting Font
Emphatic comments left on message boards and other online forums. Shouting font is not actually a typeface, but refers to text riddled with question marks and exclamation points.
The Word of the Week comes from China Digital Space’s Grass-Mud Horse Lexicon, a glossary of terms created by Chinese netizens and frequently encountered in online political discussions. These are the words of China’s online “resistance discourse,” used to mock and subvert the official language around censorship and political correctness.
