Tumblr, YouTube, and Twitter have been leading the slang game recently. "Snatched" is officially the new "fleek," "sis" is the new "bro," and adding "boots" to the end of any adjective is totally a thing. Read on to learn all the new slang words the cool kids on Internet are using.
If someone calls you extra, you're either trying too hard or being over the top. Think Regina George's mom. However, anyone from a teacher who gives too much homework to that loud, drunk, birthday girl stumbling around in a plastic tiara can be described as extra.
Snatched is the new fleek. It's used to describe anything that looks really good or on point. Anything from your eyebrows to your outfit can be snatched. If your eyebrows are slaying, they're snatched. If your outfit is slaying, it's snatched.
Sus comes from the word suspect. It's the Internet's word for sketchy or shady. Remember when Cady Heron gave Regina George Kalteen bars to "lose weight"? That was sus.
Sis is the new bro. However you'd use bro, just replace it with sis and you're good to go. Scott and Mitch of Superfruit use it nonstop, so that totally confirms that it's a thing.
Todrick Hall uses boots in a bunch of his most recent viral videos. You just add the word boots to end of adjective or verb to add emphasis to whatever you're saying. Let's say you're really tired, you can say you're tired boots.
OK, so your hunties are your best friends or friend group. Taylor Swift is one celeb who's known for having the best hunties.
OTP stands for One True Pairing. Your OTP is a couple you are emotionally invested in. My OTP is Beyoncé and Jay Z. If they were to break up, I'd literally die.
Stan is the Internet's word for fan. If you're a Taylor Swift fan, you simply stan Taylor Swift. Stanning is also a thing. See Lohanthony lip-syncing Camila's part in a Fifth Harmony song? That's him stanning Fifth Harmony.
The new "awesome" or "rad" depending on your generation. Often used in the form of "That was legitness!" to mimic the young boy whose YouTube utterance made this a viral hit among kids.
Ship is one of the most important terms on the Internet. It comes from the word relationship. You "ship" the two people you want to be in a relationship. So, if I think Olivia Pope and Fitz Grant should be together, I ship Olivia and Fitz.
