Wordplay Vol. 2

"Son, you must master the English language first."

That was what my Dad told me when I was 6 yrs old.

What he meant was that I needed to speak correct English before I could use slang words. We all use slang words. Have you ever stopped to think how ONE word can be known as FIVE other words. Check this out...

1. male- dude, homie, homeboy, peeps, folk, shawty, potna, bruh, brutha, nikka, sport, kid, son, playa, pimp

2. female- broad, babe, bunny, b*tch,
chick, jawn (my personal favorite), chickenhead, slim, slimee, stunna, shawty, playa, pimpstress

3. something nice- fresh, cool, def, fresh ta def, dope, cold (my personal favorite), hella cool, butter

I could go on and on...but I won't

Now...it's on you. Take a word...or 2...or 5...and come up with a slang for that word.

Jawn is a slang word for woman. It's a word that I've only heard by dudes from Philly. If you go to Philly, you'll hear it

Or jawn can be used to describe a thing.

"I got the jawn in my pocket"

@ CapCity
Welcome to the 12th Planet. Make sure that you come back. We have a lotta fun around here. We're here every day like bad traffic on the Beltway.

I'm very familiar with the word Bama b/c one of my best friends, Rezidl...whom you'll see on my blog, is from DC as well. He introduced me to the word when we were in college. But he learned very quickly that southerners don't take too kindly to that word. LOL

Good list!
