6. Agreed, but only when the American Heritage pronunciation guy says it
http://www.bartleby.com/61/53/B0285350.html
(Hit the "pronunciation" link, as I'm sure you'd figure out.)

You'd hardly believe all the things the pronunciation guy will pronounce; my favorite: http://www.bartleby.com/61/83/M0438300.html

Amazing how a word originally, and sensibly, meaning "causing great terror or fear" has been turned end for end and upside down. Dick Cheney is a terrible man and Barack Obama is terrific.

26. "Bitchen'" was very popular in California when I was in high school in the 1970s.
That's one way I can identify someone who grew up in California, when they use "bitchen'" to indicate something is terrific, great, fantastic, perfect, etc.

28. I moved to California in 1965 from NJ. The first time a male referred to me as "bitchin"
I was flabbergasted.


:eyes:


It was an insult on the east coast.

30. Yes I can understand why people can be confused by it.
Another expression that was popular was "bitchen-ay!" As a single interjection of delight or pleasure at something.

29. This is a dope topic:
Edited on Sat May-02-09 06:39 PM by flying rabbit
"the cat's balls" is my favorite, although when something is def, phat and stupid - that something is truly off the hook.
