“Slang Corner” is a new section of Castelli Notizie to keep you informed of slang, mainly American, which prevails in the modern world. Of course slang may be limited to certain geographical areas and is only used by certain types of people, so please take this into consideration if you intend using these words.
Hey guys! You are now into the second and third session of “SLANG CORNER” and are probably wondering how you are going to remember all these expressions. Only practice and a good memory will help you to learn quickly. Here is an easy one to remember and may I say that it is quite common to shorten words to make familiar expressions-:
CABBIE= Taxi Driver or Cab Driver
“I paid the cabbie and hit the streets”
DUDE = a male.
That dude over there is pretty cute.
He’s a weird dude.
What’s up dude?
N.B.- dude can be used in different expressions to “guy”
