In my area a synonym of very is "mad". Like mad cool, mad hot. It seems like no other place uses this word. We also use dope, sick (more common). We call our neighborhoods neighborhoods, not subdivisions. Soda is called soda not pop, lollipops aren't called suckers. A lot of new kids that come to my school end up using words that I've never really heard before, so I was wondering what kind of words you guys use? We never say gnarly, radical wicked, or anything like that but I have heard new kids say it. Might be a stupid thread but I just think it's weird how language varys from state to state, country to country etc.
