Learning English Part … something
edit: see Robert’s comments below for clarification!
Here are a few more words that have come up in conversation… and should not be taken as any sort of statement about my personal life.
camp: flamboyantly gay. (e.g. “Boy George is the campest person I know.”)
fit: attractive, not necessarily in good physical health. (e.g. “She’s going to smoke her self to an early grave, but she’s really fit.”)
pulling: kissing. (e.g. “The porters caught them pulling in the Trinity fountain.”)
Aus: pronounced ‘Oz,’ short for Australia. Also Aus-land or Aussie-land. (e.g. “Koala bears, not winged monkeys, live in Aus.”)
soccer: used in Ireland to differentiate between football (the ‘football’ in FIFA) and Gaelic football. (e.g. “Chelsea had a soccer match against Barcelona.”)
