    Oh and "y'all"

    I don't mind that it's a lazy word... it's just overused.

    And then there's "get to steppin'"

    Hmmm, British snobbery on my behalf perhaps?

    Well. Just 'well' being used instead of 'really' or 'very'. I do it myself without thinking, but it annoys me!! Saying 'Aw, that's well good' or 'well ace' or 'well nice' or 'well cool' (you get the point)

    i'm not sure that these count as slang, but they do tend to be mistakes made when speaking, rather than when writing, sooo:

    1. "there's" followed by something in the plural. e.g. "there's lots of books here."

    2. i can't remember it exactly but something along the lines of "i wish i would have" (or worse still, "i wish i would of"). what's wrong with "i wish i had"?

    as for more normal slang, i really dislike "innit" and ridiculous words like "cushdi" (sp?).

    What about "there're lots of books here"

    when speaking, that's ok. but if someone writes that down (without putting it between quotation marks and using it as direct speech) whilst sitting within arm's reach of where i am then they get a slapping.

    do people actually say that???? i can tolerate it when written down on msn/in emails/on forums, because it is a way of indicating that you find something amusing, and looks less manic than "hahaha." but are there actually people who use it as a word ???

    I was planning to denounce you all as snobs, but 'lol'?
    Why don't you just laugh! If you find it amusing- laugh!
    *shudder*

    Oh and 'Bothered':used to indicate lack of interest, can be used individually or in a sentance, as in 'do I look bothered?'- annoys the hell out of me, constantly used my my little sis.

    Other words she says that I dislike:
    'Innit': isn't it
    'Safe': alright, compliment, as in: 'You're safe, innit?'
    'Dry': Boring, not of interest. : 'That/It/You is/are sooo dry.'

    Slang unrelated to my sister that I dislike:

    'Well': really.
    'Vexed': Put out, as in: 'I was well vexed/It was well vexing'
    'Boyakasha': damn you Ali G!
    'What's gwaanin'?: What is going on?
    'Standard': see 'safe'
    'Cotching': chilling out
    'Wablo': form of greeting, presumably
    'Tonk': large
    'Bre'er': brother,man. as in 'tonk bre'er' : man of unusually large proportions.

    Oh, good, lord!
    I'm a snob!

    When people say 'heavy' to mean cool or good, i really don't like that!My friend went out on a date and the guy said to her 'you're looking heavy tonight' and she thought he was saying she was fat!Not only is slang stupid, you could end up being slapped!
    Also, alot of people say 'reet' meaning right, t'internet, and just really lame things that i didn't think people actually used in real life, like keep it on the DL (down low!),and people that say chick, darling, babez, honey in every other sentence, drives me mad!
