More Slang for the Soul!

DUDE!!! This has to be one of my favorite words to say. You can ask any of my friends. I say it all of the time. What does it mean? It’s slang, and it means ‘man or person.’

Here’s how you can use it:
Dude, what are you doing?
Instead of saying the person’s name, you can just say ‘Dude…then the rest of the sentence. In order to say this, you should know the person you are saying this to fairly well. This is the same with most slang. You can use it with your peers/friends.

    I know there are some words which should be avoided
    to use on TV or at the public place.
    How about crazy,nuts,bonkers?
    Are these words available at such situations?

    “come up for air”
    This is is easy to comprehend.

    “get it”
    Is this a slang?
    I had alredy got it what “get it” means.

  4. Yvonne says:

    You can say nuts, crazy and bonkers in public. “I’m going nuts.” or “You’re driving me crazy.” are normal sentences and not offensive at all. Of course depending on your tone and context they could be mean, but normally they are not.

    “Get it?” is slang in this context. I wouldn’t tell my boss, “Do you get it?” Or if my boss told me some task to do and I didn’t understand, I wouldn’t say, “I just don’t get it.” I would say “I’m sorry I don’t understand what you are saying.”
