Lucy van Amerongen

Nang vocabulary:
If you don't happen to be under 20 and no English teenager, you wouldn't necessarily know what 'nang' means. 'nang' is teenage language and means 'cool, excellent, brilliant'.
13-year-old Lucy van Amerongen from Cheltenham Ladies' College has collected many more of such words and phrases and published it in a book called THE A-Z OF TEEN TALK.
Here is a small collection of mote teen talk:

*The book defines 'fudge' as a stupid person, who achieved those grades at GCSE (F,U,D,G,E)."I ain't got no GCSEs and I ain't heard of fudge", a pupil said. "And if someone called me a fudge I'd give them a smack". ....

By the way, if you should go and visit England the next time, you might think twice if you use teenage slang or not. People might think there is something wrong with you....
