The British Are Coming!

I've taken notice of some new words. I've heard them a few times (read them in some blogs) and I may start using them. I thought they were made up, but I "Googled" them and found out they are legitimate words. They are British slang. Here they are; expand your vocabulary.

Won-ky [wong-kee] – adjective, -ki-er, -ki-est

  1. a. shaky, groggy or unsteady

    b. unreliable; not trustworthy

  2. slang. Stupid; boring; unattractive

Snark-y [snar'ke] – adjective, -snark-i-er; snark-i-est

  1. Rudely sarcastic or disrespectful; snide
  2. Irritable or short tempered; irascible

Of course, I would never be "wonky" or "snarky", but you never know.

That's so funny! I've heard wonky but didn't know where it came from. We use wonky sometimes. But I hadn't gotten that into snarky until blogging. Funny how I knew what it meant without having to look it up. lol But no.. WE would never be wonky or snarky, would we?! 0:-)

Wow, I use those words a lot and knew what they meant in the context that I used them. But I had no idea they were really legitimate words!
