Lingo Jingo

Ever wondered how simple normal English can be made soooo much more interesting and "cooler" to talk in simply by defying every damn grammer rule learnt in school!!!

There are various ways and means of doing that...but key is creativity and whackiness..which can be confirmed only when the person listening to you using these words for the first time sqirms and starts wondering "Which school did this dude go to???"....U know it then...u have succedded!

Now for all you beginners let me give you a few examples of some of these categories which I have heard(unfortunately these are not original creations!) and adopted successfully...

The "Cant Able to" category....like..can't able to study today or can't able to get into work mood today...! This to begin with will take some time to master and include in your lingo smoothly..but once mastered can irritate the hell outta your English teacher..trust me!

The second category is the happening category"--
Full joy happening
Full sadness happening
Full proudness happening( Nope..its not meant to be pride!)
Full shyness happening

This by far is one of my favouritest categories coz if u notice its multipurpose--can be added against any word and voila!....u have it going!:-)

The third is not really a category but more my style...its the "S" alphabet which does the magic...my favourite one being.."peoples--how abt lunch"...try it...kinda cool:-)

Besides this there are some words which have their own magic and these are bangalore special!..just like u have the "Apun Tapun" lingo in Mumbai...

Its called the "da-ra-bugger" lingo which got exposed to,on my first week in bangalore and have quite begun to enjoy it..they kinda grow on u...
"WWhat daaaa!!"
"Whatt raaaa!"
"Bugggeerrrrrrrrrrr"..(with extra stretch in the rrrr:-))

Now how this new lingo jingo has impacted me???..Well trust me it has..I have at times begun to say things which can have completely different( and may i put) wrong connotations!!..and if u think am faffing(incidentally thats my favouritest word of all!)
let me prove its scary impact on me

In recent past I had this strong pang of having a glass of juice. Now usually when I feel the need for food...any normal being would say "I'm hungry!"....So stretching my experimentation too far without realising the interpretation of what I was going to say...I blurted out "I'm Juicy"..oops!

I rest my case.

Hilarious ..
ofcourse, communication is all about the other person understanding the point you are trying to make. As long as thats being done sab chalta hai..
This also gets you in the realm of college/city lingo..etc.
In Manipal, "esh" was very popular.. everything was suffixed with "esh" ..
coffee jana hai ? sab log chorus main .. chalesh
yes = yesh, somebody saying something becomes
he "sendeshed" the funda..

Also the fact that most of us know hindi and english and without realising actually speak hinglish can lead to a whole new way of saying things ! :)
head is eating circles etc are common examples ..
