Please post latest terms used on tinternet as a resource for others.

For example, use of ‘teh’ instead of the definite article was once prevalent. I don’t know why or what it signified.

I am currently noticing cod Latin terms appearing as if the poster is channeling Chico Marx?
Is there a particular reason for this?

Teh is a common typo that came to be used on purpose

Not sure what you mean with the other bit you've posted

I mean made up words that end in a vowel so as to appear Italian or Spanish. Sometimes employed in a sentence with genuine foreign word such as giacca.

Much of that here owes to the fractured English skills of the late great Sartodinapoli - who has his own dictionary thread here.

Our new found forum friend Lumpen has similar disconnects from Henglish.
 
'their' instead of 'there is'. ah no., this is English not knowing English gramar
