Answer Answer Bouji has nothing to do with sex or jewelry as the others answers stated. Bouji is a verb. It means "to be fake; pretentious". Often times it will be used to talk about a person who thinks very highly of themselves over others. For instance, "I hate how Jane flashes her fancy car. She…'s so bouji. " Bouji is actually a degradation of the word bourgeoise, from French meaning middle or upper middle class. To be more specific, it referred to a merchant class which had earned their way into middle /upper class, but lacked the culture/nobility/attitude of the 'old money'. This was a newer development in the feudal society, which had previously just had the 'noble rich' and underclass poor. Bourgeoisie is often associated with people who attempt to show off their newly acquired wealth with flashy and ostentatious displays (ie: chrome rims), or who act overly pious about their success (as opposed to old-money people who are used to it and don't feel the need to show off as much). In hip-hip 'bouji' typically refers to formerly poor people who, upon getting money, let it get to their head and think they are better than everyone else. ( Full Answer )

First used as slang in 1896 (according to the Online Etymology Dictionary), to call someone a Jasper is to call them a rustic simpleton... in other words, a hick. Example: Did you see that dumb jasper in those dirty overalls? In more modern times, this use of "jasper" has mostly been supplante…d by the word, "bubba", another name common to rural areas. In rural communities, it loses the insulting quality, and is used to mean "guy" or "man". Example: Doesn't matter how cheap it is if some jasper doesn't want to buy it. As with most community-style slang (like the use of the "n-word" by African-Americans), it's best not to use it if you're not part of the community. ( Full Answer )

The word "smart" in the sense of sharp/stinging pain actually derives from the very same roots as "smart" in the sense of intelligence; it was not a word created by American slang. The word smart comes from the Middle English word "smerten", which in turn came from Old English "smeortan" (to be p…ainful) and "smeart" (sharp, severe, stinging). As we can see, the original meaning of the word was actually the meaning of sharp pain we still use today! In fact, the meaning of intelligence probably came from the 12th century, when the idea of "cutting wit" or "cutting words" came about, and people who had cutting/sharp wits were generally clever and intelligent. We can even go further back in the etymology and see that the Old English "smeortan" came from the West Germanic stem "smert-" (as reconstructed by linguists since it was before recorded language), which meant "to pain" or "to bite", and that came from the Proto-IndoEuropean base "smerd-" (also reconstructed by linguists), which meant "to rub" or "to pound". This shows us that the painful sense of the word was definitely there from the beginning. ( Full Answer )

Linguistic understanding and needs change over time. Different cultures all tend to create new terms for new ideas or because it is faster to say the meaning and cut down on the words used, we tend to be lazy with our communication outlets, also. While texting we say "TX" instead of "thanks", which …of course is short for "thank you", both short for "my (or many) thanks (be) to you" . "Bye" is short for "goodbye" which during the Elizabethan era was God be with you. Now my 20 year old says "late" instead of "I will see you later" (it is used in place of goodbye), not just to his friends where it started but also to me. Even the word "I'll" is a short cut word for "I will". We have different words added and deleted every new printing of the Websters dictionary and other important dictionaries like the Oxford. Just as we create new words we also tend to drop old words that are now considered obscure, obsolete. Many words we use today became slang a few hundred years ago and we brought them to America. Our lexicon evolves and changes. Some regional differences also apply, there are many words used on the west coast that have no meaning or a different meaning on the east coast. Changes occur slowly over time also. If you were to sit down and have a conversation with, say, Benjamin Franklin or anyone else whose concepts for specific uses of the English language were popular 250 years ago, the difference in understanding the concepts of a word that meant something totally different then would be a bit of a communication barrier. The other person would also use words you had no concepts for because the words or even entire phrases have evolved, or de-evolved depending on your opinion, and now have no present meaning to you. He would have no idea what you were talking about if you spoke with the same words and concepts you use with your contemporaries. Our use of language, words and phrases, constantly change as we create new words that merge with and emerge from; meaning, form, conceptual understanding, popular culture, and sometimes necessity. These changes also include the spelling of words. i beileive that slang is another way of saying words faster or so called cooler for most of the time children ( Full Answer )
