Are You Missing Out?

1. Chethee Laish

2. Gam adres

3. Mallah

My teen niece & nephews use these words, and i'm not sure if this has become standard teenage slang or is it gender/school/shillah specific.

Are you familiar with these terms?

me no english

me no nugget deyay

seriously though..we all had our own slang when we were teens....I remember how I used to say ..ya m3awwad...each time my cousin says anything...

Its thier way of showing how old we got...but we can still fight back....we can act retro and bring back things from 70s and 80s and just shock them with how poor thier generation really is. Come on!!...PSP?..iPOD?...Johnny Rockets?...livestrong bands?..and Avril laviegn whatever?...is that all you can do ?!!

PacMan can gobble all of that in one go...and then farts a number one smash hit song

yes i remember yam3awaad but i think that was early 80's.

Other slang our generation used & abused:

1. Share3 al7ub

2. Gezz

any others?
Bo Jaij:

1-Khadami = means uncool (i think its such a horrible word to use bhal ma3na)
2-Fatoorah = it has no meaning..u just say it kitha.. bdoon sabab.. madri wsh yboon 3yal hal youmeen
3-Ashkal = ignore (or 6af 3ala golatkom) example.. walla flaan 3a6ani ashkal mo7taram elyoum

el 7amdellah...I only use formal Arabic when I speak and that can never be uncool

hayya nal3ab al Atari..ayna al sharee6 ya mal3oon

Slang can be a code too...

one of the most popular slang words these days is the word ((noob))...noob as in your are usless in videgames...you are a noob....or you cant give your mobile number to a girl..yal noob

in my generation we used the term LAMER...for the same meaning

my teen cousins use it 3 times in every sentence....chithee yakloon yal noob....shfee sha3rik yal noob...6ala3t noob chibeer yal noob

And few days ago while watching the new kick ass Batman movie in the the cinema...this fat 9 year old boy next to me...shouts while spitting pop corn all over my shoulder...YAAL NOOOOOB!!!!

When Batman missed a great chance in kissing the girl :]

I wanted to pinch that kid`s cheek and stuff his mouth with more pop corn and few kitkat bars...adorable

Sheba, Every time I hear a new word I write it down and believe me when I tell you it's a very long list..

1. chethee laish = tarjama 7arfeya for "that's why"

Geo, you juvi! missed you men reja3tai mashoofech.

Sarah, share share pls other slang, theres so much more, they need a decoder when they speak i3yal hal wakt, but i cant think of any more.
W. : wasn't 'ashkal' taken from balout?

Bo Jaij & nanonano : I believe 'noob' came out from newbie. It's dala3 for it. It means you're a beginner in this. Execuse my geekness.

Sarah : You need to spread that list in an e-mail or write a new "mawsoo3a kuwaitiya" ;-)
Wow I mis-spelled excuse. Awesome :-\
6ab3an talbeyatan le raghbat Sheba wil jomhoor, I'll write you some of what I have in MY research of Teen Kuwaiti slang that I have been working on for the past 2 years (chathaba!)

*Warning: some of the words might sound dirty, and some are just disgusting, and the rest are funny ENJOY!

-mabya3a: baye3ha

-sigaala: ghatheeth

-mirees: mogassa

-9aida: 3ala neyata

and if the girl was hot the following is said:

-kaika (yekh!) I hate that word
-dimeera (lol I luv that one)
-wa77da!!! ma3a tashdeed il 7ain LOL "il7a2" or whatever that is
-3atra: ya3ni wayid.. waid..something like WOW.. madri!
- dag: means hot body (I hated the most)

and please let me know if I missed something

أنا كلمة كيكه...تضحكني...لأنها تبيّن شلون الريّال وايد..وايد يايزتله البنت...و لا أذا طلعت من قلبه وقال كيكه..أغشي من الضحك...بس عادة ما تنقال لي تنقال حق اللي معاي
LOOOL fawazzz

Oh yes meme.. if something is uncool (only used to in riyadh) we say "garaw" or "garawah"

"dafoor" means nerd.. hathe gessa b 7aalha.. i think I explained it in Crappy's blog once... the prehistoric one

I also remember the term "3ajeeb Ghareeb" but hathe was popular among the older generation (who happen to be in their 40s now) 6a7o feeha 6ee7a.. kellish ma ghair "3ajeeb ghareeb" madri wsh salfat-hom... bs kenna i7na 3alabalna shay fathee3 so we said it too ;p

Evolution of SLANG

I think I'm missing something here, but at least I hear every now & then some slang terms that became public, yes in ads, and they're so disgusting,

kaseef= miskeen broo7a shay chithi

Mallah as in Sallah - basket
My teen sisters have the following in their Q80 slang repertoire (among others):

i3akkid = mind boggling

ingizz = let's hit the town and par-tay

3agaydee = some kind of hayleg I think...

9awareekh = lies, all lies!

Also, to express sardonic, bored and blase laughter they use: "kaaaaak"

Many more, these are the ones I remember right now.

Also, it seems "yil3an 5ayrik" is making a comeback among the pre-teen set.

أكثر واحد يقول كيكة ولا زال يقولها من قلبه، كانوا يسمونه الهمبة أول
