Wanna stay on fleek? Then you shouldn’t miss the most popular slang words of 2017! We have selected the top 10 Internet slang words of 2017 among the young generation. What slang words do cool boys and girls use most frequently through the whole 2017? Are you following the trend with them?
Let’s check out together!
Original Meaning: fierce, cruel, uncivilized, rude
New Definition: amazing, cool, crazy, badass, violent. A dude who did something totally cool that nobody else had balls to do. What was “cool” in the 80s and “badass” in the 90s is now “savage” among millennials. Used primarily as a form of appreciating somebody’s vicious badassery, savage has become a fairly popular phrase. So if somebody describes you as savage, it doesn’t mean you are a caveman; they probably just think you’re really amazing.
Sample Sentence: That’s a savage drink you just made, thanks bro.
Original Meaning: a covering of leather, rubber, or the like, for the foot and all or part of the leg
New Definition: A term added on the end of a sentence to signify some form of emphasis, kind of like a verbal exclamation mark. Instead of just using a word like “very” for greater emphasis, just add ‘boots’ after an adjective or verb to whatever you’re saying. Let’s say you’re really tired, you can say you’re tired boots. It probably stems from Todrick Hall who uses boots in a bunch of his most recent viral videos.
Sample Sentence: I am annoyed boots.
Original Meaning: a vessel, especially a large oceangoing one propelled by sails or engines
New Definition: To endorse or support a romantic coupling, even if they aren’t a reality. Kind of like a fantasy pairing. It comes from the word relationship. You “ship” the two people you want to be in a relationship. So then next time you see a teenager talking about his or her ‘ship’ online, don’t mistaken them for a sailor.
Sample Sentence: I ship Ron and Hermione.
Zero Chill / No Chill
Original Meaning of chill: coldness, a feeling of sudden fear, anxiety, or alarm
New Definition: to act in a rational manner; so “no chill” means reckless or uncool. People who have “no chill” or who have lost their “chill” have effectively lost their ability to act in a rational manner.
Sample Sentence: My boss yells at me for arriving 5 minutes late to work – he has no chill.
Original Meaning: beyond or more than what is usual, expected, or necessary; additional
New Definition: To be extremely over the top in every situation even when it’s not called for. Often excessive, dramatic or inappropriate. If someone calls you extra, you’re either trying too hard or being over the top. If you get called an extra online, chances are you are coming across too strong or are trying too hard to prove yourself.
Sample Sentence: “That dude’s an extra bro, he has no chill boots!”
Original Meaning: a male given name, form of Stanley.
New Definition: a hardcore, obsessed or overzealous fan. It comes from the Eminem song Stan and it takes too long to say the words “stalker fan”. This represents a crazy, over-the-top and often terrifying fan for something (be it a person or a form of media). Stanning is also a thing.
Sample Sentence: I’m trying to watch a Amerie video and all of these Beyonce stans keep saying “Amerie sucks, Beyonce’s better.”
Original Meaning: No.
New Definition: Short for sister. Sis is the new bro. However you’d use bro, just replace it with sis and you’re good to go.
Sample Sentence: Me and my sis went to the movies.
