ok some slang...
ne haber/naber - whats up
ne var ne yok - whats up
demi - isn't it
oğlan/lan - mate

and of course there's all the shortened future tense slang, eg
gitcem - i will go
ozlicem - i will mess
etc

some msn slang -

iii - i am fine
slm - hi
kib - take care
tsk - thanks

by the way, what does 's.a' mean in msn talk?

Thanks for that,helpful how ever i thought 'Lan' was an informal/slang word meaning young man like a kinda of 'lad' character. Hmm maybe i am confused.

i think it might be both, my boyfriend used to say it all the time to me, and when i asked him why he can say it to me but i cant say it to him (cos he didnt like me calling him it lol) he said its like 'mate' but not for girls to say! haha!

Yea i have been told its not for girls to say as well i think its because its kind of crude and they dont want us saying it! Plus i think its only supposed to apply to men or boys you wouldnt say it to a girl as far as i know.
