“Y” that came in our life last decade

So the “Y” introduced us to being a YouTuber and we started experimenting with yogalates too. Don’t wonder what these words are, let me tell a brief about them. The first word I wanna share with you is yaaasssssssssssss you guessed it right…..didn’t you… arey its yaassssss what else…

Yass

This one is best expressed “YASS!” and maybe even with a few extra S’s — for added emphasis. That said, this one’s pretty simple: It simply means “yes!” albeit in a more enthusiastic (and slightly more annoying) way.

The Urban Dictionary defines it alternately as: “A word used to express extreme excitement, usually followed by a swift fist pump. It can also be used to agree with someone who has a great idea.”

Why did we all suddenly start changing the “e” in “yes” to an “a” and then elongating it as much as possible?

When you’re SO EFFING EXCITED about something that you have no other words for it, you yell “YAAAAAAAAAAS!”

 

Ok here is another slang for you-

YEET

Yeet is an exclamation of excitement, approval, surprise, or all-around energy, often as issued when doing a dance move or throwing something.

Alphabet, 3D Albhabet, Letters, Color

 

YouTuber

Introduced: December 2016

Oxford dictionary definition: A person who uploads, produces, or appears in videos on the video-sharing website YouTube.

Yogalates –

two forms of exercise that really grew in popularity over the past decade were yoga and pilates. While the 80s and 90s were all about aerobics, during the 2000s, more people took up these two gentler forms of exercise in order to get fit, both of which were popularized by celebrities. Yogalates is a brand new form of exercise that’s a mixture of both, and the name reflects this.

YOLO

“You only live once;” used to express the view that one should make the most of the present moment without worrying about the future (often as a rationale for impulsive or reckless behavior).

YOLO was a popular acronym in 2011 and 2012, short for “you only live once.” Often shouted before doing something reckless or fear-inducing, the spirit behind the word was that you should live in the moment and do the crazy things you’re afraid of.

Though Drake claims that he coined the term YOLO in his song “The Motto” in 2011, KnowYourMeme found that the first use of the acronym occurred in 2004 on the NBC reality show “The Average Joe.”

 

So now when it comes to digital technology sorry to share but we had to say bye to a very popular technology of its time.  Yes, you guessed it right its yahoo messenger.

Y for Yahoo! Messenger

One of the most popular communication platforms of the 90s and noughties bid adieu. RIP Yahoo! Messenger

 

LENOVO YOGA

Lenovo Yoga (stylized as Lenovo YOGA or simply as YOGΛ) is a range of laptop and tablet computer products from Lenovo, named for their ability to assume multiple form factors due to a hinged screen.

Ultrabook-class convertible device that can be used as both a tablet and laptop computer.

Yammer

  –  a private social network that lets individuals within an organization collaborate. Stay connected by creating groups, sharing information and ideas and organizing projects

 

That’s all for today

    I often wonder why a replaced the e in yes. And yahoo brings along so many memories. Yogalates is something i have not heard of and of course YOLO. The last decade for sure has been interesting with all these slangs and terms

  2. There are quite a few interesting words you have in the post. Some I knew, others I have added to my vocabulary. The millennials sure love portmanteaus and acronyms.

    • PraGun says:

      Thanks, Depali for stopping by. Yes, this generation is fond of acronyms and Wow you taught me a great word – portmanteau – a linguistic blend of words.

  3. Alpana says:

    Yeet was new to me. Recently, I came across Yogalates and it seems as interesting term to me. Yahoo wow….I had my first email account on Yahoo.

  4. Dashy says:

    Thanks for linking YOLO to my blog! This is an interesting list. I didn’t know yass was considered a word, haha. There are different versions of it that we use to express our excitement….like Yussss. If this continues, there will be quite a lot of words to add from the internet lingo.

  5. Deepika says:

    Few are new to me, others are known. Some day when I miss your post, I guess, which word is going to be introduced. I must say you surprised me with some unique words.

  6. anupriya says:

    So I have met YOLO twice today. I think I am going to find inspiration in that word and get my life plan in shape. I didnt know about Lenovo Yoga either.

    • PraGun says:

      Yes, even I read the beautiful YOLO posts and have tagged them too.
      YOLO certainly is the need of the hour so we can enjoy the present moment.

  7. Sonia Dogra says:

    Pragun I knew quite a few!! Yayy…I’m not as antique as I think myself to be!
    Thanks for your wonderful series all through A to Z.

  8. Yass and Yeet something new for me. Yass does not sound as good as yes!

  9. I guess they also call it “Yusss.” Haha
    Interesting post, as usual. However, I was thinking Yahoo messenger was older than a decade.
