teen-slang-from-one-who-knows-information

I found this definition of slang online: a type of language that consists of words and phrases that are regarded as very informal, are more common in speech than in writing, and are typically restricted to a particular context or group of people.

I have some arguments for this definition and some things to add! I don’t think slang is very formal. Yes, you wouldn’t use it around teachers or family, but other than that, I don’t think slang is a very informal thing to use. I would like to add that slang is mostly used by teenagers and young adults around the world.

Some popular slang used:
Bro – short for brother, usually used when talking to a friend.
Homie – means friend.
Later – this is less popular, but it’s used as a way to say goodbye; short for “I’ll talk to you later”.
Fire – means someone/something looks great, usually used to show interest.
Gucci – although this isn’t used very often, it means good or cool.
Slay – means killed it, or you did a good job, but in my experience, it is usually used sarcastically.
Cap – a lie, usually used when someone is trying to brag.
Extra – used when you might think someone is doing too much or is too dressed up.
Ghosted – used when someone stops talking to you for months without warning.
Caught in 4k – used when someone is caught in a lie or doing something embarrassing.

Although abbreviations are not technically slang, they are used among the same age group in electronic conversations to shorten typing time.

Lol – laughing out loud
Ttyl – talk to you later
Wyd – what are you doing
Wym – what do you mean
Hru – how are you
K – okay
Ily – I love you
Ilym – I love you more
Ilyt – I love you too
Nvm – never mind
Ofc – of course
Ikr – I know right

The Story of Ferdinand (1936) by Munro Leaf and Robert Lawson is about a pacifist bull. He prefers to smell flowers. Miss Frog helped Miss Owl enjoy this book.

Elmer’s Christmas by David McKee is a sweet story in the Elmer elephant book series. While the adults work on festive preparations, Elmer takes the young ones up the mountain. Seeing their first snow, they have a fun time. They find a tree they can “easily return.” Good idea! In this story, the baby elephants want to give people gifts, too, not just receive presents. And Elmer, a star among the elephants, helps the young ones meet Papa Red. Miss Frog is a star who helps Miss Owl read and create art.

 
Why Ms Frog is a Vegetarian
 

Hi! Ms Frog here, and I’m here to tell you why I chose to be vegetarian! First off I really care for animals truly, I think they are beautiful creatures and deserve to be treated as such. (Warning! This is all my opinion and if you chose to eat meat I don’t disagree at all!, that is your belief.)
