Word of the week – wicked

This week’s word of the week is – wicked.

You might already know this word, but it has two meanings. The dictionary definition is –

– evil: Sadam Hussein was a wicked man.

– the wicked witch.

The meaning I want to tell you about is the slang version:

This song is wicked / This film is wicked/ That’s a wicked idea

In these cases it doesn’t mean evil it means – cool, excellent….

You can tell which meaning people use by the situation and how they say it i.e. not many people think Sadam Hussein was cool, so you know they mean evil!

I hope this is useful for you, ask me any questions you have about this word, or give me some examples of what you think is a wicked!

have a great weekend x
