EtymologyEdit

From quá-quá-quá or quiá-quiá-quiá, of onomatopoeic origin. In use since at least 2004. The laugh originated among Brazilians, but today is also used by the Portuguese and other Portuguese speakers. The same onomatopoeia may have inspired Korean (k), which gave origin to English kek.

Alternative formsEdit

  • kk, kkkk, kkkkk, kkkkkk (and so on, depending on the supposed length of the laugh)
  • KKK
  • kkkj

InterjectionEdit

  1. (Internet slang) hahaha (laugh)
