1. adv. - shortened variant of "probably"; in all likelihood; likely. Typically used online.

1. You should prolly used "prolly" only in instant messaging. Using it in real life sounds kinda lame-o. But I prolly won't follow this rule anyhow...

Usage Notes: Using "prolly" and other forms of internet slang do not make one an idiot, unlike many of the arrogant people here have established. It is used simply because it is quicker to type "prolly" than "probably".

Literary colloquialism for "probably", most likely first used in print in John Kennedy Toole's Confederacy of Dunces, (1980), in the speech of one of the book's characters, the mother of the protagonist, Ignatius J. Reilly. The use of the word is meant to reflect the speech typical of white working-class residents of New Orleans, Louisiana.

A spoken colloquialism that existed pre-internet, despite what many people claim.

"Prolly" is a clipped pronunciation of "probably"; compare with "g'day" as a clipped pronunciation of "good day", or "gonna" as a common spoken shortening of "going to".

Certainly non-standard, but not necessarily indicative of the writer's laziness. For some, writing in this manner mimics their natural speech pattern/dialect.
She said she'd prolly come over after she's finished relaxin' at the beach.

(spoken example) "I'm prolly gonna head down to Toranna {Toronto} for the May 2-4."
