Like your man Russel Peters says in your language: HELLO!!!!!! :D

I don't know that much about slangs in Pakistan, but phainty means this:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9JZ8ZbWn_MA

It's a long time ago since I have seen that video, and I am in ischool so I can not turn on any sound, so I am not sure whether they use any harsh language in that video.

So you are on your own risk :balajirao

There are generally two mainstream school of slangs in pakistan ...Karachi vs Punjab

The karachi ones are more or less identical to Indian ones ..like jugaar, tullay, chana, chaani, chanaybazi(poondi in punjab), tafreeh ai (maza aaya) etc

The punjabi ones are rather more funny ones and give you satisfaction of a slang when spoken in that typical masculine/dhansoo punjabi accent.

I agree. Actually, If it wasn't for the sheer fear of school like rules here Mr Administrator :D, I would have given you some rather ridiculous sounding karachi slangs for genitalia :D.

But just in case, Le t me tell you that they call "kaanni dena" (patangbazi related) "Dhurkai dena" and call Talawain"
"Kannay" :)))

Seriously, who calls Talawain, Kannay? :)))

Since Karachi is the hub of all kinds of indian migrants to pakistan , therefore you get all kinds of indian slangs there.

However, that mumbaiya "bhai log" language is mostly spoken out as a fashion (due to the bollywood influence) and not because people have been speaking it since their previous generations.

Since lots of parsis, gujratis, memons, hyderabaids also reside in Karachi therefore their respective dialects could also be heard in the city, though they are in minority and only popular among the respective ethnic groups.

As for mainstream slangs so yes mostly central or northern indian slangs have survived here.


bonga/ bongi ...male and female version of the word "stupid"..bongi is also "the act of stupidity"

pondi and tarna are roughly the same thing (the first one is a punjabi slang while the second one is from Karachi )..It is the act of voyeurism i.e staring, following , checking out, stalking etc Girls.

Lol.. I thought I had a masters degree in Karachi's slang BUT even I've never heard of some of the "Karachi" slang mentioned in this thread. Yeh konsa Karachi hai bhai?! :))

btw, shughal lagaana has taken over tafree karna; and fit hai has taken over set hai.

Add to that punter, ******, dhulaayi, Lagay raho/laga reh, bohot aala, akhri hogaya/akhri kar diya, Chowrangi ghumaana/kataana, peena (as in "sirf aik ghantay mein woh mujhe pee gaya" ), and.... aap ka bhai ! :))

And uraana also refers to lambasting someone. YK uses this word all the time.. "Media ne mujhay uraa k rakh diya". :yk

Poondiyan/taarna can be roughly translated into flirting/staring/eve-teasing...I hope you get the point. :P

Bonga is for male and bongi is used for girls.
There is also a word called bongiyan which is pretty much plural of the word.
Which means stupidity/nonsense/idiotic.

"Bongiyan kyun maar rahay ho!"
"Why are you doing that idiotic nonsense?"

There isn't any exact parallel word for it in English,though.

Haha. Great thread.

Some of my favorite Lahori slang:

Soch hay teri - you can't even imagine

Jani - used like aur jani, kaisa hay? while you're chest bumping another dude. Total bromance.

Akheer/anth - really damn good. Similar to aala/bohot aala

Anni phair di - brought the house down

short ho jana - to flee the scene

suttay chikna - to smoke cigarettes

rakh kay lagana - this is probably closest to de ghuma kay. But it's all about how you say rakh. RAAAKH!!

The ones in bold are also used here (in KHI), except that it's rakh k dena instead of lagaana.

Equivalent of jani is jigar. (I hate both of them though!)

Some more:

Dairh hoshiyaar: I don't think any expression in English can fully explain what this means. :)) "Over-smart", may be?

Kataana

Lush

Shashkay maarna

Dheela (i.e. "lazy")

Last 4 also used in Lahore. Though instead of chaura I've mostly heard chaur.

Another Karachi-Lahore variant I can think of is when you don't get along with somebody we tend to say meri us say bari lagti hay, whereas Karachiwalas tend to say meri us say bohat hat-ti hay.
