AAE Q66: 'dawg'


Please, what does "dawg " mean?

I didn´t find any translation of this one so I suppose it may be a slang expression ( hope it isn´t derogatory ).

If yes, please reply on my e-mail only.



Hi again,

Dawg (US, colloquial for dog)
  • it is a way of addressing a friend, an acquaintance: "Whats up Dawg!" or "yo dawg that was awesome".
  • as it is another way of saying "dog" it can also be used as an insult, particularly to a woman: "Daaamn, she is a dawg!"
Hope this helps
