Cuppa Copy Lingo

Some new words, phrases, sounds and expressions by yours truly, that just might find an entry in the Oxford Dictionary some day:
  • Klipithiri: Referring to a small twist or problem
  • Tsuna / Tsunapi: Thing
  • Fool of a guy / Moron of a guy: When the person alluding to is an absolute fool or moron
  • Is he dumb or is he dumb?: When the person on the other end pretends to be a real dumbass
  • Shing: That easy
  • Tapping the head or chin, twirling the tresses: Thinking
  • Rolling the eye: Warning
  • Don't you dare: Warning again
  • Dusht Kumari: Cruel Girl
  • Vyaaj Kumar: A con guy, or someone who cannot be trusted
  • Santhosh Kumar: Happy Guy
  • Ksheen Kumar: Tired Guy
  • When to use the word 'Funny': When you want to refer to someone or something as different, ugly, awkward, bad or just plain 'funny'. Sometimes can be used as a word filler, when you run out of words, and still come clean.
  • Fooling around: Again a sort of filler, where you can say 'fooling around' for just about anything without really meaning 'fooling around'.
  • 'Ga' Shape: In malayalam the letter 'ga' resembles the letter 's' when horizontally tilted at 90 deg. It refers to the condition of a person when physically unwell (a combination, or otherwise, of headache, neck-ache, backache, leg-ache etc)
  • La-la-la-la-la: (in a sing-song) If something needs to be done with a flourish, like write poetically or la-la-la-la-la!
  • Dishkyaeow: The sound says it all!
  • Zokka: Fatso task /thing/person
  • No Raksha: No hope
  • Ithian Bothamless: A person who has no common sense ('Botham' in malayalam means sense)
  • 'Meim' (as in gori 'meim') - 'Maam' with a twist (and a dollop of butter for maska-fying) ;)
