Fortunately, Kim Kardashian West took to her app Friday to share a specially curated list of her favorite family slang to jump-start this deep dive into the language of America’s reality television royalty.
For the uninitiated, “thot” is an acronym for “that ho over there” and according to Kim, a turbo thot “is an individual who is particularly fast, in the colloquial and sexual sense of the word.”
Still confused? Here’s how Kim would use it in a sentence: “That girl is such a turbo thot; she’s literally hooked up with every guy I know.”
Well then … the more you know.
Remember when Kanye West almost named his album Waves and ignited the most epic Twitter feud of 2016?
Well, he may have eventually settled for The Life of Pablo, but according to the KarJenners, that doesn’t mean they can’t incorporate the word into their daily vocab.
According to Kim, a wave is “the current trend, what’s cool right now; what all the cool kids are super into at the moment,” so there you have it.
A favorite regularly used by Kylie Jenner, Kim clarifies sus means someone who is “acting shady as f—,” basically. It’s short for “suspect” or “suspicious.”
Vibes consist of “the general feelings that someone or something gives you,” explains Kim. “A vibe is not concrete, but rather a mood you feel from other people and your surroundings.”
Things you might refer to as snatched: your waist, your eyebrows, your general aesthetic – basically this is a term referring to good looks and overall “fierceness,” says Kim. Take notes, people.
This one is a point of contention. While Kim listed “turnt” amongst her favorites (“not to be confused with ‘lit,’ ‘turnt’ is used to describe the atmosphere of a party, event or group of individuals,” she explains), sister Khloé Kardashian isn’t such a fan: “never liked this one,” she previously wrote on her own app.
Gives me life
This one’s pretty obvious – “to make one excited; to give one a reason to live,” Khloé explains.
What gives Khloé life, you might wonder? Her “long nails,” obviously – this is a Kardashian we’re talking about here, after all.
A few other favorites …
Originating from the fact that we swear on the Bible in court, crying out the word “Bible!” has become a KarJenner klassic when it comes to expressing something you really mean.
Its most recent appearance? On an episode of KUWTK this season, when Kendall Jenner put brother Rob Kardashian on blast for regifting the iPad she bought him to Blac Chyna.
“Bible – I want my iPad, my pen and my keyboard back,” she said. She ain’t messing around, Rob.
A combination of the words “slut” and “whore.”
“Take a chill pill, you slore,” – a sentence once uttered by Khloé, really.
When your mom is also your manager, á la Kris Jenner.
Originating from the ’90s sitcom Martin, “Damn, Gina!” is used regularly by Khloé to express shock and awe, in a good way – like, “Damn, Gina, you are looking fine!” (Fun fact: Khloé has at least one celebrity superfan who “Damn, Gina”-ed her right back: Sophia Bush.)
We’re not quite sure how to explain this one, to be honest, but Khloé keeps saying it on Snapchat. We’re thinking it’s a combination of the words “okay,” “sure,” but stay tuned for further research.
