This is everyday Grammar. I'm Kaveh.
And I'm Lucija. Whoa! Did you see that?
Yeah, what's going on Lucija?
Hmm…I guess those are just words that are coming and going.
Well, can we make them stop, please?
No. It's actually quite normal. One of the reasons why English has grown as a world language is that it adapts easily to change.
So you're telling me that while some of the words go out of style, others become super popular?
Yes! We call that slang. Different expressions become popular at different times. Like,
Sorry Mac, that's none of your beeswax.
Sorry Mac, that's none of your beeswax.（麦克，不好意思，这不关你事。）
What a funny old bird you are.
What a funny old bird you are.（你真是个有趣的老人家。）
Now, you're just confusing me.
Listen. Me and my sweetheart are going steady, and we're planning on taking his hot rod to see a flick later. And remember, nobody puts baby in a corner.
Listen. Me and my sweetheart are going steady, and we're planning on taking his hot rod to see a flick later. And remember, nobody puts baby in a corner. （听着，我和我的亲爱的关系很好，我们正打算稍后开着他的车去看电影，记着，任何人都是不可小觑的。）
I'm just kidding. Those are just old expressions that aren't used anymore.
Whoa! Well, you're cray cray. And I was about to take a selfie, since I'm on fleek. But, no worries! I won't throw any shade your way, since the tea wasn't that good. FOMO! TBT!
OK, now you're saying any current popular expression that comes to mind.
That's true. But these words, like yours, will soon go out of style. Since they're just words that are coming and going.
