The Old Person's Guide To Hip Young Modern Lingo

Have you listened in on a conversation between a group of kids these days?

They sound like they're speaking in some sort of shorthand with all those letter clusters, shortened words and those weird sounding made up word like fleek and bae.

On fleek

A newer, hepper, sassier version of the urban phrase “on point,” which means something is as it should be. If a girl has prepared her eyebrows in an alluring and sensuous manner, her eyebrows are said to be “on fleek.”


Noun. Term of endearment variously thought to either be a truncation of “baby” or an acronym meaning “before anybody else.”

It's as if they're speaking in code to keep their conversations secret from the older folks, but now you can break the code by reading The Old Person's Guide To Hip Young Lingo- your definitive guide to AF, FOMO and HMU.


Acronym meaning “as f#%k.” Example: “Those pancakes were delicious AF.”


Acronym meaning “Fear Of Missing Out.” It has nothing to do with homosexuality, or at least I don’t think it does.
