Home > Blossary: Chinese Slang
Chinese slang is informal language coined to express ideas on the Internet in response to events, the influence of the mass media and foreign culture, and the desire of people to simplify and update the Chinese language. Slang that first appears on the net is often adopted to become current in everyday life. It includes content relating to all aspects of life — social, mass media, economic, and political etc. Internet slang is arguably the fastest changing aspect of the language, created by a number of different influences — technology (the means used to input and send messages), mass media and foreign culture amongst others. The Chinese language is filled with wonderful slang, colloquialisms, curses, and vulgarisms. But be careful what you say. Although this glossary may seem relatively innocent, the wrong word in the wrong place can cause a lot of trouble. You are best off listening out for these words before you start using them yourself. And make sure you get the tones right, or you may end up saying something entirely different.
