Here are some slang words to get you started. Have fun learning! 😀
A “trolly” is the word the British use for a shopping cart. However, when the noun “trolly” is turned into the adjective “trollied,” it is used to describe someone as being drunk.
“I had a few too many cocktails last night, mate. I was trollied.”
In American English, “fag” is a derogatory (insulting or mean) term for someone who is gay. In British slang, however, it just means a cigarette.
“I’m going outside for a fag.”
Cuppa comes from the phrase “cup of.” The implied (suggested) meaning is a cup of tea (because we love tea…). The word “tea” is not actually needed. You only need to make it clear if it is a “cuppa” coffee or a “cuppa” something other than tea.
“Would you like a cuppa?”
“I’d love one. I’ll get the kettle on.”
The original meaning of “gut” is to remove the insides of an animal before eating it (gutting a fish, for example). It also has the meaning of being bitterly disappointed about something.
“I was gutted when I failed the exam.”
