What exactly are slang terms?
Placing the word in quotes marks it as a slang word; if you have the slightest inclination that you know what a term is all about, and then you probably have heard of it. Placing the word in quotes marks it as an idiomatic expression or a phrase used by people who would not otherwise use it in a professional or ordinary context.
Many of the world’s cultures are rich in oral traditions and have evolved their own unique vocabulary and slang over time. These cultures include British, American, Australian, Canadian, and many other East Asian nations. English has borrowed much of their terminology and in particular the widely used word “slang”. So much so that some people claim that the whole system of English, and indeed all languages, are based on an inflexible borrowing from other cultures.
You might think that this is an example of how little we know about our past and that it is just an example of one of the many colorful ways in which our culture has developed, but no. The word “fleek” is an example of a very colorful informal language. The origin of the word is most probably a blend of French and Latin roots, but it is also associated with a number of West African languages, particularly Swahili. In fact, one of the most famous examples of slang is the cartoon character Bugs Bunny, whose real name is Fagin.
In English, the word can be found throughout, although it is found most commonly in the phrase “in order”. Slang usage can be found throughout the literature, but in order to really understand the full impact of the language, you need to learn about the wider definition and extent of slang terms. The dictionary presents the meaning of a word, but it does not give a history of the meanings or a place where it came from. A more accurate definition is the one given by people who use it all day, every day, as well as those who only use it on a very casual basis. In short, slang is really just a language that is used by everyone in everyday life.
