10 disgusting borrowings in the Russian language, which we regularly use


Sometimes foreign words so firmly settled in our vocabulary that we say they have already unconsciously, automatically. We forget that the borrowed words can be very to spoil our speech or message in social networks, and leave the most favorable impression.

Of course, young people that uses to each other familiar words in a conversation, you will not notice how much they ruin said, but literate and educated people will always pay attention to how ugly they sound.

In this article you will learn what slang words young people (and indeed people of any age) says in conversations without hesitation.

Someone is doing this on purpose, to seem trendy, and someone can not get rid of the habit to speak.

10. Feedback

On the Internet the word can be found more frequently than in the store. It comes from English and means "reverse power".

If we consider the word in a broader sense, it means a challenge, a reaction – product, any action event. On many websites under the feedback understand feedback from visitors, please leave your opinion.

For example, if you search the Internet section "users ' opinions", and bump into "feedback" – you know, that word is a substitute.

9. Security

Security call any employee of the security service. It can be a watchman, a security guard – one who protects a person or group of people. In General, the one who first takes the blow in case of threat.

The foreign word came to us not so long ago, but now it is used quite often.

In addition, in computing there is such a term as "smart secuirty", which means the set of solutions providing security devices.

8. Speech

So-called short speech pronounced at the Banquet gala dinner. In short, speech is a short speech of welcome.

All of us watch politicians or big businessmen, talking sentimental speech. But they are specially written for them, and there is even such a position "speech writer". Officially it's called "a specialist in public relations".

The speech is a short catchy phrase, for example: "do You still want to stay here or come with me to conquer the world?"

7. Following you

The so-called Twitter users, subscribed to someone else's message. If someone reads your posts, they are called followers. That is, the followers is the one who signed someone on Twitter or instagram, and watching his news. Can be interpreted as a kindred spirit.

The followers need those who need to promote weight in their music, product, or those who just want to share their life events and to attract observers.

6. Llight

If you say to your PAL: "You're so light!" he regarded it as the compliment that it is light, positive, pleasant. Of course, in the event that he uses in his speech slang expressions. The word was borrowed from English "light" can be translated as "easy".

Examples: "Phew, today is a hot day... I would drink a light of water, and that throat is dry". "You're such a light girl! A pleasure to communicate with you."

5. Production

This word is used not as often as "light", "HYIP" or "a hater", but I've heard it all exactly. This word is a Russian version of English "production", which means the production of something. That is, it refers to the process of creating a creative product. Most often, the word production is used in the field of music and film.

In film production is used more often – it is included in all work stages of the industry: voice-over, editing, script writing, etc., This word can be easily replaced by another production.


In the youth slang is very common to find the word HYIP. The very use of the word already makes you fashionable, hipoly – so fashionable, and hypem is to have fun, hang out.

HYIP means any hype near the event or person. But there is a caveat – I don't think the hype can be called anything that attracted public attention. Rather, it means people's attention to the outrageous situation, man.

Very often it is used by the youth in their conversation, when it comes to show business, where someone wants to be promoted using non-obvious actions.

3. Bow

The word comes from the English "look", which means "appearance" and "appearance", i.e. appearance. The word onion is a set of components such as clothes, makeup, shoes that turns out to be a complete image.

The onion is always a designation of the image: stylish clothes, well-chosen accessories, etc

Instead, you can use a different "image", it will mean the same thing. VKontakte has long existed a group of "Lookbook" in which people share their photos with unique fashion looks.

2. Hand-made

For some reason, many creative people prefer to name their products in a blog or on sites of needlework hand-made, and not just "Handicrafts". Perhaps a foreign word attracts more subscribers...

In General, hand-made means any product that was created with his own hands. It can be postcards, notebooks, clothing etc

Maybe not as important as people call your creations? If they like the word hand-made, so be it. More importantly, what they are, and what feelings their creations cause people and the creators themselves.

1. Face

"Face" (face) is the face. Young people very often uses this word instead of "person". The Internet keeps coming up with new words and idioms, it's not always possible to keep track of when they used a particular word. In addition, young people often uses the word face in communicating, and poker face.

Poker face was borrowed from the English "poker face", and means "poker face". That is, it means the facial expressions, devoid of any emotion, indifferent face. The poker face of a character called "Rage Comics", which in any situation, there stone face.
