Slang refers to informal language that is typically used in casual conversations, and it often includes words or phrases that are not found in standard English dictionaries. Slang is often used among friends, peers, or within certain social groups, and it can help create a sense of belonging and identity.

Slang words and phrases can vary by region, age group, and social context, and they can be constantly evolving. For example, “cool” is a slang term that has been popular for many decades, while “lit” has emerged more recently as a popular term for something that is exciting or impressive.

Some common features of slang include shortened or abbreviated words, such as “gimme” for “give me” or “bro” for “brother.” Slang can also involve creative and often humorous use of language, such as “chillax” for “chill and relax” or “hangry” for “hungry and angry.”
