Slang Words: Do You Remember Your Generation’s Jargon? Millennials Have Their Own Language!
Do you recall some of the slang or catch phrases you used when you were young and trying to be the "bomb-diggity"? I remember using "like" a lot, like totally, way too much. I invented the word "bitchin" in the 80's. Not really, but I might as well have.
Here are some other words and phrases from the 80's and 90's:
"Bitchin" = Cool.
"The bomb" or "the bomb diggity" = Excellent.
"Sup?" = What's up?
"Git witchu" = Be with you.
"All that" or "all that and a bag of chips" = Superior or the best.
"Psych" = NOT! Or just kidding.
"I'm psyched." = I'm excited.
"No duh!" = Yes, I know. Everyone knows that.
"Excellent" = Excellent.
"Bad" = Good.
"Take a chill pill!" = Calm down.
Today's teens have their own jargon just like we did. Here are some of the words they're using, according to USA Today:
"LB/FB." Translation = Like Back/Follow Back.
"Throwing shade." Translation = To insult someone.
"Squad." Translation = Closest group of friends.
"Thirsty." Translation = It means someone is desperate, especially when it comes to dating.
The letter "V," which is short for "very." Example: "I'm V good at fooling my parents."
"Woke." Translation = It means you're smart and paying attention.
