This question is too basic; it can be definitively and permanently answered by a single link to a standard internet reference source designed specifically to find that type of information. If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.


used as a command to a horse to make it stop or slow down.
informal used as a greeting, to express surprise or interest, or to command attention: whoa, that's huge!

It's still whoa in all but Internet-speak.
