Decoding "Deuce Sp34k"

Although the Deuce still causes me head to ache a bit, I've endeavored to establish some guidelines for understanding to assist the confused (like me). While there's alot that's apparently random, there are a few consistencies.

Rule One: when the number "4" appears in a word it always represents the letter "A", as it pl4yer.

Rule two: when the number "3" appears in a word it represents the letter "E", as in play3r.

Rule three: when the number "1" appears in a word it represents the letter "i", as in p1mp.

Rule four: when the number "7" appears in a word it represents the letter "L", as in p7ayer.

Feel free to add or amend. Many of you have prolly figured this much out already, but for those who hav3n't, th3r3 you go.

    yeah the thing is deuce thinks he's a hacker and posts in leet (hacker language). more on interpreting leetspeak:

    "Key points for interpreting leetspeek
    • Numbers are often used as letters. The term "leet" could be written as "1337," with "1" replacing the letter L, "3" posing as a backwards letter E, and "7" resembling the letter T. Others include "8" replacing the letter B, "9" used as a G, "0" (zero) in lieu of O, and so on.

    • Non-alphabet characters can be used to replace the letters they resemble. For example, "5" or even "$" can replace the letter S. Applying this style, the word "leetspeek" can be written as "133t5p33k" or even "!337$p34k," with "4" replacing the letter A.

    • Letters can be substituted for other letters that may sound alike. Using "Z" for a final letter S, and "X" for words ending in the letters C or K is common. For example, leetspeekers might refer to their computer "5x1llz" (skills).

    • Rules of grammar are rarely obeyed. Some leetspeekers will capitalize every letter except for vowels (LiKe THiS) and otherwise reject conventional English style and grammar, or drop vowels from words (such as converting very to "vry").

    • Mistakes are often left uncorrected. Common typing misspellings (typos) such as "teh" instead of the are left uncorrected or sometimes adopted to replace the correct spelling.

    • Non-alphanumeric characters may be combined to form letters. For example, using slashes to create "/\/\" can substitute for the letter M, and two pipes combined with a hyphen to form "|-|" is often used in place of the letter H. Thus, the word ham could be written as "|-|4/\/\."

    • The suffix "0rz" is often appended to words for emphasis or to make them plural. For example, "h4xx0rz," "sk1llz0rz," and "pwnz0rz," are plural or emphasized versions (or both) of hacks, skills, and owns."
