    Lol but who speaks like that? I know bits and bobs of slang but that didn't even make sense to me lol.

    Dead usually means crap...well to me lol. :eek:
    Agreed..as in deadout.

    But take into consideration that that poster is from Scotland so it differs from place to place.

    Just like London and Birmingham etc.

    Like not dat dey necessarily talk with bad grammar but it's just all slangified n everythang, not jokingly but they just type / talk like that...
    mm I don't think it's too bad spoken but written down is pure laziness.

    I hate when people don't write properly and use slang because I can't understand it.

    Talking is a different matter. I'm from the outskirts of Glasgow everyone uses some form of slang around here.

    I do it too to an extent. When I talk to people who don't speak properly at all I slip into e "neddy" accent without even meaning to.

    I find it annoying and sounds a bit childish but then I'm 25.
    I expect you use your own slang.

    I don't see the problem with slang, really. I use it all the time wherever, at home or in Iceland. Slang is slang, it's what makes up dialects, etc.

    Some places in Glasgow and surrounding areas in the west of Scotland. "Pure dead brilliant" is the logo printed on Prestwick Airport :p:

    "Pure dead brilliant" = really/exceptionally good


    If want to look at Scottish slang, take a look at this (some of them are a bit outdated):

    Don't think anything's wrong with it tbh, if you live in particular areas where it's spoken frequently, then you automatically pick it up.
    I'm with you 90% of the way. However, every time I hear a middle-class kid say "bare", I want to stab them in the eye with a sex-offender's genitals. Same for whenever I hear the same kid use Rastafarian slang.

    As long as those white kids don't use it. I get the ones who live in council estates in london using it. But most of them are just doing it to be cool.

    White kids cant use slang?? Theres more than one type of slang. How many Black and Asians do you hear saying, "Alright Geezer," etc..?

    i often use 'proper' or 'dead' in replacement for 'really' like "i'm dead tired" but 'bare' is pushing it a bit far.

    I only talk slang if me and my friends are taking the piss. Can't stand it if people talk to me like that ALL the time. Don't even understand most of the words.

    I used to slip into 'narr, that's bare good, innit' every now and then, my friends of the time spoke like it and it just kind of..rubs off. (never said blud though, that's taking it too far :P )
