Petmalu ang Werpa ng mga Lodi

Wazzup Pilipinas!

I think that I shall never see a word as lovely as "Lodi"

Grabe, I'm kinda surprised catching up on these ever-evolving cultures! But all differences are respected, free-willingly, lest I'll be tied to close-&-small-mindedness.

If you’ve been seeing the words lodi, werpa, and petmalu on your News Feed lately, don't be too confused. You might actually be familiar with these terms already. There seems to be a resurgence of the use of colloquial terms in the country, especially online, where people are always creating new modes of communication. This time around, there are fresh—albeit, funny sounding—coined words that millennials are using to express themselves. The style in which these words are fashioned, however, is an old school trick, where the syllables of a particular word are switched around to form a new one.

If the ‘70s had amats, astig, epats , and olats, and the the ‘80s had jeproks, bagets, and senglot , what kind of words are the kids of today using?

I am actually feeling old whenever I hear these "new" but familiar ways of creating new lingos since people have done the same before.

Just like in fashion, old trends just keeps coming back. It may just be a fad that will soon be replaced by a new "fad".

Here are some of the most popular slang terms you should know right now:
