Foreigners on here

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
As most of the people here are from the UK we use different words to express the way we feel or think than say America. I just noticed my_name said in one of her posts, "top fella he was", and I was wondering if you use British slang like (bit of a bad example) shag or shagging in the real world?

    Shagging is widely used here (I'm from England..)! In places, especially London (sorry if this offends i don't mean it too), words like "buff" make me laugh....! We call those people down here in the westcountry...townies...! And the word fit...blokes use it loads now and they never used to, I'm only just starting to find myself remotely flattered by it!

    I'm not being rude, but I think you both completely missed his point.

    He's asking if any non-Brits see words often used on here, and then pick them up and use it themselves in real life.

    Well, I don't speak English in everyday life, but I've picked up some British slang from the internet to use. :)

    Although perhaps I don't count as English is not my first language. :o

    Okey dokey, 1337 stands for 'leet' which is the 'language' of a deranged group of people online who call themselves "hAx0rz" god knows why its called 1337... but it is.

    I think I pick up American slang, rather than the British.

    1337 is a play on the mis-spelling of elite I think.

    thanks for enlightening me!

    i have never heard that word used over here,but from what i have heard in the uk it means your butt,and in austrailia it means your front side.so if you would go to australia and and say they have a nice fanny,you'd be in for a slapping.correct me if i am wrong,but that is what i have heard over the years:)

    Nope, fanny here is a somewhat out dated slang term for pussy.

    And in the US (some parts) its relatively nice way of saying arse.

    i thought it was the other way round.

    always cracked me up when an american would say 'fannybag' meaning bumbag
    or my favourite, when i was like 9 and read the babysitters club books, there was one where its snowing and they 'slid down the hill on their fanny's' i was like 'painful.'
