How well do you know your slang?

Are your eyebrows "on fleek?" Is your "OTP" Big Sean and Ariana Grande? (Spoiler alert: They broke up weeks ago. You're "low key" super late if "UOENO." If you answered "yaasss" you might know a little somethin' somethin' but "no flex zone." If you have no idea what's being said, keep reading!

bae*: Means "before anyone else" and has evolved to being synonymous for babe or baby.

Used in a sentence: I miss you bae.

***Can also be used as: Zayn Malik was bae before he left One Direction.

basic: Someone who is unsophisticated, uninteresting and unoriginal. Basically, whatever is can be qualified as a "not" that defines the person.

used In a sentence: All she does is go on Facebook and rant and complain — she's so basic.

can't even: When something is so indescribably good, one cannot handle the given situation.

used In a sentence: Big Sean's new album is so good, I can't even.

IOENO/UOENO: stands for "I don't even know" or "you don't even know." Think of IOENO/UOENO as the modern day idk. (Psst. idk is "I don't know.")

Used in a sentence: "When do final exams start?" "IOENO."

low key: to want or do something in secret or discreetly.

Used in a sentence: I low key want some pizza right now even though I started my diet an hour ago.

No flex zone: A place where one shouldn't brag or flaunt himself or herself in order to show off or gain attention.

Used in a sentence: First person: "My new dress was on sale for $20. The regular retail price was $199.99." Second person: *Glares* No flex zone.

On fleek: Something that is without error or imperfections. "On fleek" can be used when something is the bomb.com or when someone, maybe "bae," looks flawless.

Used in a sentence: Your outfit was on fleek yesterday.

OTP: Means "one true pairing" and refers to a person's favorite combination of people in a relationship.

Used in a sentence: I'm so sad that Big Sean and Ariana Grande broke up because they were my OTP.

thirsty: Thirsty, in the slang sense of the word, can be defined as someone who is overly desperate for someone or something.

used In a sentence: OMG he's so thirsty. He won't stop following me around.

Yaasss: Think of yasss as the word yes on steroids. Yasss is used with a trillion times more excitement. (The more "a's" and "s's" used the more enthusiasm is conveyed.)

Used in a sentence: "Movies tonight or nah?" "Yaassss."
