Category:Colloquial

Definition from Wiktionary, a free dictionary

Jump to: navigation, search

Colloquial denotes words, written or spoken, that are standard and not slang, but likely arose via casual conversational English, and are likely to be used primarily in casual conversation rather than in more formal written works, speeches, and discourse. Compare similar tag Category:Informal.

  • Note: It's a common misconception that colloquial somehow denotes "location" or a word being "regional". This is not the case; the word root for colloquial is related to locution, not location.

This category contains terms that are considered colloquial.
