So, which of these have you been using in your chats? Some of these words will definitely leave you in splits with their double meanings! Come, explore the list-

1)  BAE

Probably the biggest slang term of 2014-15, BAE is the abbreviated form of “babe” and also an acronym for “before anyone else”. This word is used to point out at a person’s significant other or his/her partner in particular. It may also be used to refer to other things that one likes, like food etc. This word was used by Pharell in his popular song, “Come Get it Bae”.

 

2)  SHADE

This term has come into mainstream use only recently, though it was popular in certain communities from a long time. To throw shade means to insult someone, but in a subtle or a pleasant manner. Like saying something negative in a pleasing way. For example- “I love how you wear those red pants without fearing the bull.” This would be considered a shade!

 

3)  SWERVE

It’s mostly used to call someone whose lying, or to tell someone to go away because that person’s being talking non sense. Though it can take on many more meanings, like dodging someone. Kind of Like “Say Man, Carry On With That Non sense.” This word comes from the song “Mercy”, by Kanye West.

 

4)  MANKY

This refers to something which is nasty or dirty, and trying to figure out how manky suits this definition should absolutely not be thought of!

 

5)  BUZZ

Give me a buzz when free, or simply feeling the buzz after the vodka shots. Buzz is the new “buzz word” of the town guys. This is mostly used to state some form of excitement, or the feeling of getting high.

6)  DOE

No, this word doesn’t refer to a female deer anymore. The letter “D” in Doe was more used as a replacement for “th” in “Though”. This is mostly used at the end of a sentence, to imply that a person was impressed by something, such as “that food fest, doe.”

7)  TBT

This started off as a trending hashtag and became a phenomenon, a nostalgia-loving millenials made every day Throwback Thursday. People used to post old photos on all social media sites every Thursday, and moreover started using the phrase TBT in everyday conversation to refer to past events and recall them. Like TBT to that time when we went on that trekking trip.

 

8)  DEAD

This is an extreme word, which in itself points out to an emotion where people don’t find any other word suitable. Like, using this word to signify an overdose of some daring act or where people are so overcome with emotion that they can’t say anything else. Example- He stood up in the middle of the conference and walked off saying his boss’s speech is too boring. Dead!

9)  ZERO CHILL

We all have heard out people telling us to “chill out”. So, someone is said to have “zero chill” when they go absolutely all over on something!

 

10)  SICKENING

Though the exact meaning states something in a bad sense, but the slang says quite the opposite. The slang, is used for something which is insanely good. Like, “that Arijit Singh concert man, awesomely sickening!”
