That's teh funny!

An interesting thread on the use of the word "teh" (originally a spelling variant of "the") in "Internetese" occurred on CONLANG-L recently.

If you want to follow along, start at this message; I particularly found the analysis in this message by Muke Tever interesting since it put into words most of what I had observed but never organised into a system.

It is teh fascinating. At least, the first few messages in the thread; later ones drift off topic and discuss things such as the difference in UK and US usage in such sentences as "He went to hospital" vs "He went to the hospital".
