When learning English, it is often difficult to keep an overview of the slang terms and the best buried terms in the previous year. But don`t worry – we`ve got you covered! Here is the last part of our “Slang for the Coming Year” series with terms that range from funny to simply strange. 2016 may have been the year of Brexit and described everything as illuminated, but now it`s 2017, there`s a brand new delivery of fresh slang words that all English learners need to know if you want to stay entirely on Fleek. Luckily for you, I`ve put together this handy list to keep you updated. With a new year comes a whole series of new, often confusing, slang concepts. As quickly as they leave, they seem to disappear, relegated to the depths of “terrifying” terms that should not be pronounced. Mainly spoken to express joy or agreement I know what you all think that this one is practically old. But instead of referring to the actual act of retweeting a person`s Twitter message, this term has been used more recently to express consent. So if someone says something you totally agree with, instead of saying “yes, I agree,” just say “retweet.” Because who else really has time to pronounce three-word sentences?. is used to say that you agree or disagree with something because of your moral, religious or political convictions, which are used in old-fashioned English to show that you are very interested in doing what someone has proposed to say that you accept a situation where something has been decided or necessary, Even if you are not happy about it. Used to show that you agree with what someone just said in South Africa, a way of saying “yes” or “I agree” to say that you will accept or offer the Tired by Someone`s Attitude award? Can`t go to work in the morning? You`re done with that. You can even write it big for the extra effect.
I am done with that statement. IT`S OVER. To be cap is to lie. This particular phrase can be taken in situations of skepticism (“it cuts”) or to convince someone of the legitimacy of your statement (“no cap”). As an added bonus, if you feel like your friend isn`t quite telling the truth, you can simply send them the baseball cap emoji while getting your message across. . . .
