bcause / coz = because
ttfn = tar tar for now
4eva = forever

different people use different abbirvations.  Normaly with english words, just take out the vowels; a e i o u.
And normaly that makes sense. Ill use your sentance;; (and write it how i would write it, fast or on msn)

Whn I hear lng wrds lke approxmtly, i wnt 2 wrte thm as fst as I CAN. Any suggestin 2 abbrviate wrds lke tht?

As you can see, abbirvating like that can be pretty annnoying, the word in the capital letter is correct not could! 

Take care x
