It can be easy to feel left behind and over the hill as Gen Z start using new words and phrases - and you have no clue what they mean.
So if you’ve been left wondering ‘am I cheugy?’ worry no more - this is your complete guide to the vocabulary of TikTok.
While in the UK, we might think the word fit is used to describe a good looking person, on TikTok it’s an abbreviation for the word outfit. So if someone is talking about their fit, they’re talking about what they’re wearing. For example: “Check out my fit today.”
The word finna comes from the phrase “fixing to”, which comes from the south of America, and it essentially means “going to do something”. For example: “I’m finna chill out on my day off.”
3. No cap
The phrase “no cap” is used as an expression of sincerity to show that a person isn’t lying about something, or that they’re telling the truth. Basically, it’s another way to say “seriously”. The phrase came around after it became popular to say that someone was “capping” if you thought they were lying. For example: “I didn’t take the last slice of pizza, no cap.”
4. CEO of X
