As a high school student of this day and age, trends and slangs are ever changing. Hearing the slangs my peers say is so weird! In a few years, these would be a figment of one’s imagination. Some are food related such as raw while others, like dope, has a totally different meaning than before!
Whether you want to decipher teen language or figure out which ones you heard, below is a list of slangs that are (were) popular and their meanings.
