Journalist, Lauren Lindmeier, poses with a dictionary.

Perhaps you have been missing SHS slang. Fear not, I am here to keep you educated on the new lingo you may be hearing in the hallways of Sartell High School.

Lauren Lindmeier
The word flex and its parts of speech.

Flex noun, verb

\   fleks \

Synonyms: Show off, to gloat, to boast; a highly prized and sought after item

“I hate to FLEX, but I just aced that pre-calc quiz

FLEX is defined by the Merriam-Webster dictionary as, “to bend, especially continuously.” The dictionary version is not the same as the slang version, however, as this word takes on a whole new meaning in slang. Flex can be used in a variety of different ways, such as a way to boast and prove your superiority in a particular field. It can be used as a noun and or a verb. In the following sentence, it is using used as a noun, “Wow, what a flex.” The word flex is the subject of the sentence. It can also be a verb, “I am really flexing right now.”

Lauren Lindmeier
Stand back I’m boutta flex is a popular saying

This term is commonly used to express a state of great achievement, but many users of the word, also use it ironically. They may say they are flexing, when in fact they did something that is very undeserving of boasting and gloating.

A physical flex.

Nolan Wollum poses with a dictionary for his annual slang article.

We are approximately five weeks into the school year? That’s like maybe, 1/10 or so done or something! Maybe! Progress! In this year of school, we must continue to persist even through the perils of a newish year, such as homework, procrastination, and just flat out ineptitude. There are many ways to combat these issues, and my personal coping method is slang. A slang a day keeps the doctor away, or at least that’s what 9 out of 10 doctors say. Here’s more slang.

 

WAY OF THE ROAD  (Phrase)

/wā/ /əv/ /T͟Hē/ /rōd/

Synonyms: How it goes, result

“That’s just the way of the road, Bubs.”

Way of the road is a phrase that can be used in many situations, especially those of ending in results that is not what was intended. Way of the road is a sort of a mood in life, as sometimes, things just happen that are out of your control, that just need to be excepted and accepted, regardless of whether it was wanted or not.

And we back. Another year of school at Sartell High School has commenced, and along with the new year, new slang also appears from numerous sources:  the internet, media, or someone’s own conviction! Also, along with a new year comes a new format, because yolo.  So you know how it ’bout to be. Let’s rise this school year and get this bread.

 

SMOKE noun

\ ˈsmōk  \

Synonyms: Trouble, Issue

“You don’t want no SMOKE, JT!”

SMOKE is defined by the Merriam-Webster dictionary as “a visible suspension of carbon or other particles in the air, typically one emitted from a burning substance.” The dictionary version is not the same as the slang version, however, as this word takes on a whole new meaning in slang. Smoke can be used in a variety of ways, such as someone not wanting to have anything to do with you or your group. Smoke is the result of a confrontation that could result in trouble.

The slang of SHS: part 25

Smack

In this article of the “Slang of SHS” we will cover how students at Sartell High School both compliment and insult people and objects. It seems unlikely that one word can mean two different things that are polar opposites, but Sartell students have done it again. Smack, the newest slang word filling the halls, is quite versatile.

Webster’s Dictionary defines smack as, “a sharp slap or blow, typically one given with the palm of the hand.” Much like a slap in the face, the act of delivering a comment that “smacks” usually delivers a sharp blow to the recipient. Here at SHS when someone is smacked by another, they receive the brunt of directly personal joke.

Smack can also carry another meaning, synonymous with compliment. Smack can cover any, and all emotions, and when used correctly can cause great harm or joy, depending upon the context.

That lunch smacked bb.”

— Eddie Hamilton

SHS Defintion:

Smack verb/adjective  (Sm-AcK)

1.(v) to make fun of another with intentions of causing embarrassment/anger

2.(adj) a way to express feelings about a positive experience (Especially when referring to food)

 

Ex:

1:      Student 1: You’re so dumb you don’t even hear Laurel or Yanny.

Student 2: Dang! He just got smacked.

2:      I had the buffalo chicken chunks for lunch today, they totally smacked!

Younce

In this article of “The slang of SHS,” I will be addressing the movements of Sartell students. Students at Sartell High School move quickly and know to do so from the use of one word. When students feel that they are ready to make a move one might utter a phrase similar to this one, “Dude let’s younce” or “younce?” This signals to all parties that they are about to be on the move. 

Imma ’bout to younce to the bank after school and then to the gym. I’m just gonna be youncin.”

— Senior Lexie Lamont

When one completes the action of youncing, he or she seems to exit a location with an increased sense of urgency. One might frequently hear the word younce at the end of a class period, during awkward situations, or when leaving a public place.

SHS Defintion:

Younce verb (YAH-ow-nce)

1. (v) an urgent form of movement; usually when leaving a location

Ex:

1. Yo Steven, we gotta younce the police are comin’.

Jorts/Groutfit

In this edition of “The slang of SHS,” I will be covering clothing styles here at SHS. Since the beginning of the universe, humankind has been looking for ways to advance the fashion industry. The students at Sartell High School have made earth-shattering breakthroughs in terms of fashion. Over the past few years, Sartell students have created trends worthy to be worn by Tyra Banks, Gigi Hadid, and Kendall Jenner. There are too many to name, but here are a few: Jorts and Groutfits.

In my opinion the best groutfits are heather gray.”

— Lexie Lamont

 

SHS Defintion:

Jorts noun (joHr-tS)

1.(n) a pair of form-fitting jeans cut into shorts, worn anytime of the year

Ex: 

1.”I love Kevin’s new jorts, he looks like a man I wouldn’t want to mess with.”

Groutfit noun (grOUT-fit)

1.(n) a head-to-toe gray outfit, for those who are seeking comfort

Dogs

In this article of “The slang of SHS,” I will be focusing on another widely used term around Sartell High School. Here at Sartell, students do not simply saunter through the halls in just any ole’ footwear. Rather, it’s more common to see someone sporting a fresh new pair of dogs.

The word dogs has gone through quite the transformation. Students are not walking around with furry barking animals taped to their feet. Instead, they are just showing off a new pair of sleek looking sneakers. Dogs can be found in any classroom, but you need to look hard to find them. Not every pair of clean kicks are classified as dogs, but every pair of dogs are clean kicks.

I need a new pair of dogs for the spring!”

— Blake Webster

SHS Definition: 

Dogs noun (Dah-guhs)

1. (n) a pair of impeccably stylish shoes; clean kicks

Ex:

1. Hey Carl, where did you get those sick dogs you had on yesterday? I need a pair!

Icy

In this article of “The slang of SHS,” we will cover how Sartell High School students give compliments. When walking through the halls of SHS, one does not hear traditional admirations. Instead of the classic, “I love your sunglasses!” a typical student at Sartell might hear something more like, “Dude those shades are so icy.”

To the average pedestrian, hearing this statement might bring on a sense of confusion. If unaware of the newest slang, one might assume that there are actual icicles dangling from the student’s sunglasses. To refer to something as icy is actually not a warning to crank up the heat and thaw out. Rather, being icy is a compliment toward another person in regards to their stylish appearance.

SHS Definition:

 

Icy Adj. (IsE)

1.  (adj) A compliment of the highest regards (especially when referring to shoes and/or shades)

Ex: 

1. Bro, did you see Kyle’s watch? It’s so icy!
