Default Paschto/Pukhto Slang. - 09-28-2017, 09:17 AM

So i'm interested in Paschto/Pukhto slang words. I know different people from different tribes/regions have their own specific slang words and expressions. I guess this topic has never been discussed here. I don't know why. So, I'f you people have any slang vocabulary that's peculiar to your tribe and/or region, I'd like you to share it with us so that we could refresh our knowledge and enhance our Paschto vocabulary as well.
You can ask for whatever word/expression that you are interested to know here too.

Let me give few words that i think are slang words. Not used by many of Pashtuns. There's this word we use 'paddu' for owl. So it's mostly used for stupid people as well. Don't confuse it with 'payndu' of Urdu.
And this word 'kattasaray' for a person who laughs often and for no good reason.

I've heard the phrase "kattasaray" before. It's used for someone who has a physically large head. In fact my dad (may Allah swt) bless him had a childhood friend who everyone used to call "kattasaray meegai" as he had a huge head. I don't know if that individual is still alive although I do know he had killed a lot of people.

I have always used it for the person who laughs at stupid things. 'Katta' being related to 'katkatti' or 'katkatta' meaning 'kat kat khandal' and sar here has connotative meaning of mind or mentality, i guess.
We use 'kotawer' for large head. Our people have this famous proverb 'Asal kotawer ye, kamasla psarawer ye' LOL.
It's a slang. It can have different meaning for different people. So no worries.

Tashparay is basically the pashto version of "half assed"
