Some Quintessential American English Slang Words

This is not for corporate correspondence, but use of slang has been rampant in almost all types of languages. 

Although, slang does not present you in a presentable format, there is no harm in using it once or twice, especially if you cannot substitute it with a better word, in an instant.  

Slang words have also been used in American English, and sine the time is ripe to talk about slang words since the white supremacists have covered the headlines of all leading daily newspapers. 

That is, why not use some slang words for these non-benevolent creatures? So, here are the best five for them. 

1. By the skin of (my/your/his/her) teeth 

This awesome phrase means ‘just barely.’ That is, you can use it when you meet some conditions or needs just barely. 

Nonetheless, you never use this word to glorify anyone or anything.

  The white supremacists have all mongooses by the skin of their teeth.  

2. Crash 

Well, no. This does not mean to get through something or someone while driving a car or any vehicle. 

Of course, if you use it in a unspeakable non-slang situation, you are going to miss the concept of speaking it altogether. Crash, the popular American slang means: To abruptly fall asleep, or to show up without invitation. 

Many opponents of white supremacists crashed, and then someone with and evil car crashed into them.  

3. Knock 

Knock, in slang terms, does not mean to overpower or to hit. It means: To speak negatively, to disparage, to badmouth. 

The white supremacists were all in knock when they heard the blacks are also forming a black supremacist gang.  

4. Pig Out 

Well, there is Pig in for this. Pig is often used as slang, but do you know what it means when used with the word ‘out’. I know, you do, provided you have been to Charlottesville and tried to be white supremacists. Pig out is a metaphor for binge eating.  

Never ever pig out because you just want to crash! 

5. Going Dutch 

This does not mean any Dutch going out or coming in. In fact, this is an obligatory and racial nature. I do not know how Dutch came to be in slang, but the Dutch would never find it interesting. 

This slang is used when each person, usually in a dating scenario, pays for his/her own meal. 

Definitely no one is going Dutch in your next date.

In Hindi, chatṭni is a pickled condiment that is created by using fruit, vinegar, spices and sugar. 

It also means ‘to lick ‘and Indians who mostly use hands to eat food are often found licking their fingers, which is why probably the word got name related with licking.
