UK Slang: British Words for everyday use

5 ay ├Ânce
Here are some slang words to get you started. Have fun learning! ­čśÇ

Trollied
A ÔÇťtrollyÔÇŁ is the word the British use for a shopping cart. However, when the noun ÔÇťtrollyÔÇŁ is turned into the adjective ÔÇťtrollied,ÔÇŁ it is used to describe someone as being drunk.

ÔÇťI had a few too many cocktails last night, mate. I was trollied.ÔÇŁ

Fag
In American English, ÔÇťfagÔÇŁ is a derogatory (insulting or mean) term for someone who is gay. In British slang, however, it just means a cigarette.

ÔÇťIÔÇÖm going outside for a fag.ÔÇŁ

Cuppa
Cuppa comes from the phrase ÔÇťcup of.ÔÇŁ The implied (suggested) meaning is a cup of tea (because we love teaÔÇŽ). The word ÔÇťteaÔÇŁ is not actually needed. You only need to make it clear if it is a ÔÇťcuppaÔÇŁ coffee or a ÔÇťcuppaÔÇŁ something other than tea.

ÔÇťWould you like a cuppa?ÔÇŁ
ÔÇťIÔÇÖd love one. IÔÇÖll get the kettle on.ÔÇŁ

Gutted
The original meaning of ÔÇťgutÔÇŁ 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.

ÔÇťI was gutted when I failed the exam.ÔÇŁ
