@aparrish I have been wondering something for a while, about the use of language on the internet.

You know how sometimes, a social media post starts with words in square brackets to express something about speech that cannot be conveyed in text? For example:

[falsetto] *barbecue saaauuuce*

Is there a name for that? Does it count as "diagetic"?
