Further to a programme I heard on BBC Radio 4 I was thinking today...
Do you have any odd words or phrases that you and your family or friends use? It could be a word used out of context or perhaps a completely made up word. It might be something you use at work, something you grunt whilst training - anything.
Having consdered this in the shower today me and my friends use the following:
Moist- Used in the place of good/spectactacular/excellent/attractive. Eg, "She is moist" or "This meal is moist".
Highly succulent- again, used to replace good/spectactacular/excellent/attractive. Eg, "Today I saw a highly succulent Aston Martin".
Whim Diddley- A noise of delight or exertion, usually shouted!
Spewing- Used to replace angry/fuming/livid. Often asked as a greeting. Eg, "Are you spewing?"
Reaping- Usually used to oppose the notion that one is "spewing". Often used to represent that one is pleased. Eg, Q- "Are you spewing?" A- "Reaping actually"
Destroying- Performing a task well and with great gusto. Whether this be eating quickly whilst enjoying it or used as a blanket term for "getting on well with another in an amorous fashion".
Sampling- If a friend is getting to know someone they like and displaying this fact physically then sampling is used as a polite and non-graphic representation of this. It may have many permutations covering all of the "bases". "Destroying" may also be used...
Whomping- Used to convey desperation. Also used to represent hitting something very hard, usually with a stick. Eg, "I am whomping for the toilet..." or "Wow, he gave that a good, stern whomping..."
Whop- To do somthing in a fast, enthusiastic or careless fashion. Also used to mean "hit" Eg, "Oh, just whomp it in there" or "
Despite being a student I like messing about with language, especially since I am so constrained in terms of creativity doing a BSc where everything has a name and a place and an order.
Do you lot have any odd little phrases that you are willing to share?
