I am sort of a slang connoisseur. I am a student of the slang world. I love making up my own words and seeing other people use them also.
There are a lot of ways to go about making up your own slang. One popular way is to combine two words to make one. Some of my favorite slang words using this concept are:
Multislacking- Doing multiple slacker-esque things concurrently.
Technosexual- A person, male or female, who is so deeply enthralled with technology they discuss it with a level of passion that most people reserve for sex.
Nonversation- The type of conversation held with another person when you really do not wish to talk to them. It consists of short and to the point replies, which do not add to the conversation and make it hard for the other person to continue.
Slacktivist- political activist who has been active in the past, but in the present mostly talks about politics, drinks beer, smoke’s weed, and has sex with other activists.
Sexsuade- To convince someone to agree to, accept, or do something, usually by using the promise of sex
Another teqnique that is popular is adding the word “Man” in front of everything. Like for example:
Manscaping- when a man grooms himself.
Manscara- what you say when you see a guy wearing mascara.
Manswer- is a very manly answer.
Mansectomy- A procedure for removing excess fat (man-boobs) from a male chest.
The great thing about slang is, you can make up words that sound cool, and just integrate them into your everyday dialogue. Then when people hear you say it, they are like man, “I need to get hip on today’s slang.” The cool thing is when you hear someone you know start using word you have invented. When I was 18, I lived in a house with 6 people in there mid 20’s, and one who was 40. Although a huge age difference, Martin was really cool. The only problem was that he was unfamiliar with the slang we all used. He was always asking us to give definitions to the weird words we used so regularly. One day me and the other people in there 20’s decided to come up with a word that we would all use, but use in different ways to mess with Martin. The word we decided on was Crunk. Although now, according to the slang dictionary crunk means crazy and drunk, at the time it was a word that had not been used. So we set off on the crunk prank. We all used the word differently. When he would ask what it meant we would all give him a different answer. For me I told him, “You only use it to describe something that was disgusting.” My friend Terrin told him, “Crunk is someone who is a crusty punk.” And Megan told him, “It is something that is really exciting.” He generally seemed perplexed by this mysterious hybrid word that everyone used, but could be used in so many different ways. A few weeks went by and the use of the word seized and no one told Martin it was a joke. We only realized he didn’t know it was a joke until we had a party and I overheard a drunk Martin trying to fit in with all the younger people by throwing the word Crunk in most of his conversations. I did not want to tell him there because honestly, I was enjoying people look at him like he was Rain Man. It was like a MasterCard commercial because it was priceless. The next day I informed him of the joke and we shared a good laugh.
Here are a few words I have invented:
Hallahdino- A brazialian Hallah
Badonkulars- when you see a badonkadonk butt far away.
Strollonsticate- when you are leaving by way of walking.
Sloshy Slosh- when someone is having sex while you are in the room and can hear it.
Rollonsticate- when you are leaving by way of driving
Spliggity Splow- A sound affect you make when presenting or receiving something
Mahallah- A Hawaiian hallah.
Frontedonupon- when someone front’s on you, and gets away with it.
Won Ton Bon Cron- when a food is exceptionally good. It can also be broken up into Won Ton or Bon Cron.
