3.0 out of 5 stars Stick to Brit Slang, 6 Oct 2005
This review is from: Fanboys and overdogs: the language report (Hardcover)
I dislike when books reach too far in digging up word origins.
For example- "crunk" is NOT a combination of crazy and drunk.
It is African American slang and an incorrect use of tenses. Drink-drunk, think- thunk, crank- crunk.
Instead of turning things up, one can also "crank" things up. Crank up the noise, crank up the volume, crank up the sound etc. If a party is wild its "cranked up", but like the word "drink" which becomes "drunk", in this vernacular "cranked" becomes "crunk".
Crunk means something that has been cranked all the way up.
