I recently realized that since Chinese characters have no uppercase equvalents, it's impossible to create a simple equivalent of "Internet scream" by typping everything uppercase. Are there any techniques specific to Chinese Internet communities that achieve a similar goal?

Since there is no uppercase or lowercase in Chinese, we can only use very large text to 'yell' with text

For example, use 36pt characters for specific words in a text that's typed in 12pt

  • 平常語氣 (normal speech)

  • 嚴肅口吻 (serious/ stern tone)

  • 大聲呼喊(yell loudly)

I AM VERY ANGRY!

我很生气!!! (Add a lot of "!" at the end of the sentence. This can be seen in some publications such as novels.)

我!很!生!气! I! AM! VERY! ANGRY! (Insert a "!" between each character. This is very informal, and it is usually used in chatting software. Also, it is stronger.)

Simply add "!!!" to end of your sentences.
