What does Ting mean?

‘Ting’ is slang for ‘Thing’

‘Ting’ is a slang term that comes from shortening the word ‘thing’. This slang term is often used by teenagers who prefer to use abbreviations in their conversations.

Interestingly, this abbreviation only cuts off one letter from the original word, making it a pretty inefficient way to save time or effort. Nonetheless, it has gained popularity among certain groups.

It’s not uncommon to see ‘Ting’ in the same conversation as other slang abbreviations like ‘dis’, ‘da’, and ‘dat’. These sorts of slang terms are a hallmark of certain youth dialects.

So if you hear someone saying ‘Ting’, remember they’re just saying ‘thing’ in a slightly more casual and abbreviated way.
