What are you alls thoughts on this / favorite slang / categories for this?

That list is the shit. I like and want to integrate more CP slang into my character.  Especially the more he's demoralized by the mix and corporate oppression.   For me personally it's easiest if I pick one word, or a couple but no more than like three, try to integrate them for a while, and if I like the way it flows, it sticks.   If I try integrating a bunch of them at once then it becomes overload for me poor little brain and I don't end up making any of them perminant.

I agree, it's important not to overload yourself with to much slang.  Another thing I try to do is hit @who and the use the slang term it lists in the conversation I am having.

Any new slang out there?  Here are the ones you should hopefully be trying to incorporate daily:

flash
wiz,
chy
chum / chummer/ chummette / choomer / choombata
baka
splat job
ace / aces
ace kool
scan / ya scan
savy
biz
candy
decker
cold tea

prog - progia/phone

nlem - my new favorite, a phonetic pronunciation for NLM, be it the corp, or TV or media in general (ie. 'I think I'll just chill and watch some nlem.')

I swear I had more, but that's all I can remember right now.

+1 Geks.

Love me some Kat and Wak.

Sicnal - sic signal, I think this was originally a typo, but it works perfectly, when you're in a brownout you complain about needing to find sicnal

what does baka, bata etc; mean in the other lists?

Inside the game, you can type (for example) "@slang baka" to see its Sindome meaning.

It goes the other way too - try "@slang money" for example.

Any new slang to report?

The only ones i've been using that aren't on the @slang list are:

Drek- Shit, as in junk or just something shitty.(i think everyone's popping this in occasionally now, though)

chaol- a real tough studly mano

joeboy/girl - beefy goons

Is there a means to update the @slang with info from this thread?

Email a list to help@sindome.org

What format should the list be?

Cyberpunk - English

Geek - kill, murder

I've emailed a list of all the slang from this thread that doesn't have an entry in @slang.

So, not everything in this thread--especially the stuff at the top--is Sindome slang. I tend to only add things if they are actually used, or if they fit with the theme. So, if you see something on here that you want to use--DO IT!!!!-- and then we can add it to @slang when it's adopted.

Hell, make up words. I know I do.

I'm new here, so this might a stupid idea, so bear with me and let me know if it's a bad or good idea. I was thinking of throwing some Nadsat slang from Anthony Burgess's A Clockwork Orange. Not a lot, but maybe a few choice phrases. Stupid idea or not? The problem is that A Clockwork Orange might be too culturally significant IRL to make it work believably in the game. Here are just a few examples I was thinking off. A lot of these are based off of Cockney rhyming slang and Slavic phrases.

Bibilio - Library

Bog - God

Cancer - Cigarette

Cal - Shit/feces

Charlie - Chaplin/priest

Godman - Priest

Crast - Steal

Cutter - money

Em - Mother

Pee - Father

Roz/Rozzes - Police

Snuff it - Die

Viddy - See

Just a few examples, most of which I selected because they were more inspired by English slang, rather than Slavic (But if you play with Russian/Balkan ethnicity then Nadsat might be very appealing, since most of it is heavily bastardized Russian).

Anyone who read the book (or even saw the movie) knows there's A LOT more slang terms, I just chose a few of my favorites and tried to leave out the more well known ones (horrorshow, tolchock, droog, krovy, etc.)

My suggestion is, as always, just start using it ICly and if it catches on, it catches on. These are all pretty great examples of interesting slang.

Yeah, I think it will fit well into the gameworld. Especially since there's already a place called the Korova Milk Bar.
