In today’s day in age, we hear a lot of slang, mostly coming from celebrities, musicians, and media. I walked around Christian Brothers High School to find out the most common slang used around our special campus. I heard a lot of different slang but I picked the five most popular.
Definition: Used when agreeing with someone, on either an idea, plan, or topic of any sort
Example: “Hey bro, Jeremy Rhodes is a better rapper than Sam Tanberg, Drew Taylor, and Jonny Stone…yeah bro, that’s Big Facts.”
“Its become part of our everyday language, like if somebody says something we like, its just come natural to say Facts or Big Facts” – Jake Regino (’18)
Definition: Also known as to be honest, it can be used multiple ways, and TBH I don’t feel like explaining them all.
Example: “TBH, I don’t really feel like going to the party tonight.”
“TBH, bae, we boonk around, and TBH its just become a signature saying for the Bears. We use it every sentence, TBH, and it can be used at any time” – Drew Taylor (’18)
Definition: Used when you hear something good or excites you.
Example: “Hey Matt, I got us a ride to the party… talk to me!”
“Talk to me can be used in many ways. The Bears use it in a way for motivation, like if someone is about to take their shot, we say talk to me, or if someone has an idea we say talk to me nice, hoping for the best to happen.” – Jonny Stone (’18)
Defintion: Used to replace like bro, or homie.
Example: “What’s up, Bae?”
“Bae is anything important to you. A couple years ago it meant ‘before anything else’, but now it’s whatever makes you happy” – Sam Tanberg (’18)
Defintion: Used pretty much as “the plan”.
Example: “What’s up Bae?… what’s the move this weekend?”
“The phrase ‘whats the move’ is a cooler, more hip way of saying “what are we doing next”. It’s a way of finding out whats about to go down and gets me pumped about the next activity I will be doing” – Anna Clare Nelson (’18)
Well Bae, its facts that we all know a little more about slang, and TBH, I’m sure you are glad you read this article… so in that case, talk to me!
