Brony Lingo

Recommended Posts

Hello.

 

I see a lot of brony slang in the community, like "everypony" and the such. What are everyone's thoughts on it? It sometimes makes me cringe, but doesn't bother me greatly.

Hey @

 

As this topic relates to the Brony community, I've moved it over to Sugarcube Corner.

 

Thanks!

This is an accurate view of my opinion on the matter.

I came from a furry background so the lingo doesn't bother me that much. 

 

I can't really wrap my head around SSP's though. Is it supposed to be irl or just your characters?

 I have no problem with brony lingo. I can see how some people might think it is a little cringe worthy, but to me its all in good fun.

I use it when I'm talking about the show. For example, if I want to talk about all the ponies, I say "everypony". But not when I'm talking about people.

 

Honestly, I don't care if people use it. It's a mark of the fandom and it's harmless.

I find it mostly harmless as long as you don't use the terms around anyone outside of the fandom.

Fandoms have their own slang that they create and use, and for me, I don't really have a problen for brony slang at all.

I really like the special brony words :) since my boyfriend is a brony too we use it a lot when we meet with our friend group, together with loads of show references :D we like to tease our friends a bit XD

I love it! I think it's fun and fun to use. However, I haven't done much with the lingo lately, because I keep hearing about people who hate it, and I don't wanna be annoying. :(

I've noticed over the years that many people don't use "brony lingo" as much as they used to. This is most likely due to the fact that we've been around for 5 years, and what was thought as hip and cool to say 3 years ago isn't so anymore.

 

Take Dashies 20% cooler line for example. I remember Bronies quoting her all day everyday back in 2012, but if you bring it up now it's considered annoying and cringe inducing. Imo, It's pretty rare to see someone unintentionally use "somepony, anypony, and everypony" nowadays. Just my own 2 cents  -_-.

A lot of it just makes me roll my eyes, like "plot" or "clop". Admittedly I use "plot" quite a bit when tagging on, say, Derpibooru.

 

I also prefer not to (not saying refuse to) use phrases like "everypony" or "lend a hoof" in non-pony contexts, including these forums. It just sounds weird; I think those phrases are best used only in the ponyverse.

I absolutely detest the word 'everypony', both in-universe and out of it. It's entirely superfluous considering both 'everyone' and 'everybody' work equally well on ponies as they do on humans. It's not like we go around saying 'everyhuman' either.

 

Aside from that, though, I think the memetic mutation of the word 'plot' is kind of funny, and 'clop' is quite creative. I'm sure there's more, but these are the ones I see most often, so yeah.

Can confirm. :catface:

Brony lingo is the best when there are others who don't get it. There have been plenty of times where I just chuck pony references and brony lingo around in a non-brony group, and just watch the gears grind in their heads. :grin2:

I never use it, but I don't mind if other people use it.

 

The only exception is when people use it out of context, like on a non-mlp forum. Then it makes me cringe a bit.
