I´m starting a thread for posting slang - originally suggested by teaschip.......

 

Post some slang here along with the literal translation if there is one and what it means in the slang context.    This works both ways - Turkish slang translated to English or English slang translated to Turkish.   Or alternatively, if you can´t translate it........just an explanation of what it really means.

OK - I´ll start this off with one of the few bits of Turkish slang that  know........

 

kafam güzeldi

literal translation - my head was beautiful

slang meaning - I was drunk

An English saying.........

to hit the sack

 

has nothing to do with sacks.......

it means:

to go to bed - yataða girmek

The idiom hit the road has nothing to do with being aggressive towards infrastructure. It means to depart, yola koyulmak

"Kick up the a**e" means "to get someone to do something" in other words they are lazy

 

"Have you got an eye full?"  means "why are you staring at me"?

in Turkish slang, -yorum sometimes becomes -yom (:

e.g; Ben seni seviyorum becomes: Ben seni Seviyom.

That´s about all the slang I know x)

that`s not slang, in the eastern accents, -yorum becomes -yom or -yim, so that`s something dealing with accents.

we use the same idiom in Turkish; "yollara vurmak"
