Folk speech

Brick

Informant:

Matt is from Staten Island, New York and currently attends USC.

Original Script:

“It’s so freaking brick right now.”

Context:

When someone from New York wants to say that it is cold outside.

My Thoughts:

I always find it fascinating when I hear people from other areas use slang words that I have never heard. Finding out why a word takes place of another one does not always make sense at first, but after Matt explained that “in New York, the cold can hit you like a brick.”
