Some more modern slang involves the incorporation of English words into the Lao lexicon, often with a unique pronunciation for the added word. For example, many people say "khawy bo keh-yuh" to mean "I don't care." Or you might hear young people talking about "kin fee," meaning to eat without having to pay. Someone who is handsome might be considered "sa-mahd," or "smart." If a person sports a faux-hawk, they might have a "bek-ham sa-tai," or a style similar to David Beckham's.
