Что значит слово “перепсто” и как мы его используем?

  • А разве МЫ его используем?! Это typo, которое кто-то использует просто по приколу. Как правильно написали, это из лурка, воффки и двачана. Вот там и стоит искать ответ о его происхождении, и почему "перепост" некто именно так пишет. – Ulrikhe Lukoie Dec 13 '13 at 17:05

Перепсто comes from the word псто, which is a misspell of the word пост (post). The origin of the misspell is, probably, the typical mistake when a person mixes up the neighboring letters while typing. So, перепсто with its spelling normalized should look like перепоcт, which means "re-post", and is used the same way as its normalized variant.

    I think the mixing of the letters should emphasize that this word was typed in a hurry. Like "teh" instead of "the", or 1 instead of ! etc. – Artemix Dec 13 '13 at 9:23

    @Artemix - You are right, but now this misspelled variant became a meme, it's often used in what is called "язык падонкаф" which uses lots of misspells. Also, other variants of the word exist, птсо and потс. – Yellow Sky Dec 13 '13 at 10:34
