From wikipedia:
"Slang is the use of informal words and expressions that are not considered standard in the speaker's dialect or language."

Is there any slang from where you come from?
Post the word and then the meaning here.

Generally South Africa has a lot of slang, so I'm going to give the slang thats more local to my region.

Dyte - Food, hit hard, beat some-one in a compitetion, or trick some-one
Che - Share
Na - Nice, attractive
Jas - Cool

Blud - Part of your blood.... imagine Homie
Pong - Datass
Mash/Bash - One of them means masturbating while the other sex... can't remember which one is which
Bang - Sex
Wasteman - Insult to young ones who have no future
Brain - Oral sex

There's probably some more but you can't expect me to remember it all.

Just post an explanation next to the word.


Common ones here:
Bro - Short for brother
Sole - Said like 'Solly' and means like "bro"
Chur - Means 'thanks' etc
Bloke - A man
Stubby - Small bottle of beer
Knackered - Tired to the point of being useless
Eh - Makes something into a question. Like you could say "Eh?" instead of "What?"
Bit of a dag - A joker someone entertaining (or something)
Bugger off - **** off, but slightly more polite
Cuz or Cuzzy - Sometimes your cousin, sometimes just a mate or other relative
Offsider - Assistant, sidekick, sometimes friend "saw you and your offsider down the road before" etc
Mate - Refer to friend or stranger, if you said you were mates you'd be friends, but you could say to a stranger "Hey mate, how do I get to this place?" or "Back off mate" etc
Have a squiz - Take a look
Cracker day - Means a real nice day.

Or my favourite:
Yea nah
- Means maybe or I dont know or undecided or whatever else you need it to mean when you're stalling for a real answer or something to say, can also be used when someone says something like "So I just click here and it works?" and you say "Yea nah it takes a second but yea click there" etc. It comes in handy in many situations, depends on whats being said and what you're about to say after you say 'yea nah' I think its just an acquired saying, you learn how to use it over time.




Sole! Pass me a stubby. Chur bro.

I can't really remember all of our slang, but alot of it is pronounced in a special way, sometimes making it hard to share with others when your're typing.
