  'Cool' is your favourite word!
Updated 06 August 2003, 13.53

Cool is your absolute favourite word and you use it all the time.

The people who put together the Penguin English Dictionary say you use it more than any other word.

And they should know, their survey asked 20,000 seven to 15-year-olds in Britain!

L8R

Wicked was your second fave thing to say and L8R is the thing you most often text to people.

We already know that words like bling bling and phat have made it into the dictionary.

That means language is changing all the time as new words are used more and more.

Some of your other fave things to say are:

Whatever - so what

Rad - radical

Kerching - money

Minging/minger - ugly

Minted - having money

Class - really good

Heavy - bad

Safe - good

Sweet - good
