    Another they use is "fail" as a noun. "That was such a fail," for example, is something that they might say when they do something really bad in a video game.

    And, of course, you can combine the two - epic fails, apparently, happen all the time. At least, judging by how often they say it...
    This gets thrown out by the top sort of social tier around when they turn 12 or 13 in most cases.

    I can provide some birdwatcher slang:

    Twitch: travel a considerable distance to see a rare bird (usually a species usualy not found in the country). "I am going to twich the Slender-billed Curlew".

    Twitcher: someone who participates in the above activity.

    Dip: attempted to to twich a bird but failed. E.g. "I tried to get the Newcastle Yellowlegs but dipped."

    Dipper: the person who dipped.

    MEGA: A bird so rare in an area that it defies belief.

    COSMIC MIND ******: An even rarer bird than a mega.

    Purple Patch: An area that has produced a lot of rare birds in a short amount of time.

    Dude: a birdwatcher who watches birds for the pleasure of watching birds and generally is a 'bad' to 'worse' bird watcher.

    Sharpy, Blackwit, Barwit, Swampy, Red-tail, GST: All abbreviations of bird names: Sharp-tailed Sandpiper, Black-tailed Godwit, Bar-tailed Godwit, Swamp Harrier, Red-tailed Black Cockatoo, Grey Shrike Thrush.

    You wanted English, so here you are

    Sick = good
    Sound = good
    Class = good
    Quality = good
    Tidy = (welsh for good)
    Peng = attractive
    Dro = VERY attractive
    Owned = made to look foolish

    Have fun with this disgraceful language

    Basically, 3 rules.

    1) As soon as you've heard of the game and the rules, your always playing, no exceptions.

    2) You lose the game if you think about the game.

    3) You must announce (usually out loud, though often it will be on FB, a forum, or through text) whenever you lose the game.


    Many people also have a houserule that you can only lose once every 2 hours.

    And I've lost again, as has everyone reading this post.

    I like using

    "Right Proper" for "good and fitting the qualities which it should have". "That was a right proper party last night!"

    And "Righteous" meaning "awesome". "Yo, that movie was righteous!"

    Though right proper I use more often then righteous.

    Is this thread making anyone else feel either very, very young or very, very old?

    My favorite slang word is jelly (put in place of jealous). My family used to say it all the time when I was little, and now I'm hearing it everywhere. (Not sure where they got it).

    Usage:
    "Do you like my pants?"
    "No."
    "Oh. Well, you're just jelly."

    More often used, in my experience, as a prefix-y type thing. "Yo, real talk? Your jacket is kinda ugly dude..." Often used as a "Ok, gonna be completely truthful with you know, even if you won't like it" kinda thing.

    I also like "True say" used as a response to something insightful or just correct, like saying "You know, you are so right, man".

    "You realize that you COULD just do this thing and that thing at the same time, right?"
    "OOoohhhhh, true say..."

    Default Re: Slang. I want it.

    I love slang, I'll mention a few that haven't been posted yet (I don't think), this will be of a very British flavour: (I've bolded ones that are mainly youth specific)

    Nout/Nowt: Nothing. Sometimes pronounced 'Owt
    Reet: Alright (For example "You'll be reet" means "You'll be alright; used in Northern England)
    Smashed: Extremely drunk
    Hammered: Same as above ^
    Bladdered: Again, same as above ^
    Kecks: Underpants
    Fit: Attractive
    Bird: Girl/Woman (pretty sexist, be aware)
    Bloke: Man
    Ijit: A corruption of "idiot", pronounced "ee-jit"
    Well: Very (As in "well good" = "very good")
    Luv: Term of affection (sort of) used most commonly by men towards women, sometimes between two women, can be used in other situations but pretty much never between two guys. Personally I don't like this word very much.
    Mate: Friend, used between two male friends (e.g. "How you doing, mate?)
    Bruv: Cockney. Used similarly to 'mate' or 'bro'
    Pet: Similar to "luv", used in Newcastle.
    Geordie: Someone from Newcastle
    Scouser: Someone from Liverpool
    Manc: Someone from Manchester
    Brummie: Someone from Birmingham. Birmingham is also sometimes referred to as Brum
    Taffy: Someone from Wales. Techincally South Wales but generally used by English (and possibly Scottish?) to refer to people from the whole of Wales. Somewhat derogatry; comes from the River Taff, which runs through Cardiff.
    Gog: Someone from North Wales. I think this is somewhat derogatry as well. Used in Wales; comes from the Welsh word for 'North'
    Cwtch: To cuddle or snuggle (approximately), a Welsh word that crept into the English language due to a lack of a direct translation (it has connatations of safeguarding someone on top on cuddling, amongst other things)
    Dole: Job Seeker's Allowance, often used negatively, to apply to people on JSA but just taking the money so they don't have to work (e.g. "He's on the dole")

    My friends keep saying spaghetti to mean awkward or to be awkward, I don't think it'll catch on though. Who knows?

    Someone mentioned 'chappies' earlier on. 'Chappy' and 'Chap' are rather old-fashioned, and would probably only ever be used by Brits ironically or humorously. Actually I'm surprised even an old man uses words like that anymore, from the sounds of his quote, I think he was using it humorously.
