Slang-uage Challenge

You have been studying a language with some pretty outdated textbooks. When you visit the country for the first time, you realise that you don’t understand any of the modern slang that they’re using.

You have compiled a list of the slang terms you’ve heard and the contexts you heard them in:

  • Jane is drull and lumsy.
  • Louise is splooky and pleamy.
  • Sally and Mike are lumsy but dreerful.
  • The professor is dreerful and frentle.
  • Susan is ploot but frentle.
  • Richard is not only brongly but also jeepy.
  • Even though bloudy, Steve is brongly.
  • Weasy and drovious, Bella was truly a delight.
  • Even though jeepy, Jill is weasy.
  • Austin is ploot but drovious.
  • The telemarketers were splooky and not lumsy.

Challenge 1
Based on what you now know, select the sentences that you are most likely to hear in conversation.

Challenge 2
Which of these qualities would you be looking for in a person?
