Got to love you Brits and your crazy lingo. I've always wondered though, how do you say "Chav"

Is it just like it looks? With the "CH" sound, or is it with a "SH" sound?

Personally I always prononuce it ''Underprivileged council estate youths, who feel the need to replicate the fashion of the U.S gansta rappers''.

But it is pronounounced Ch-av.

LOL thanks for the lesson guys.

We have those same types over here in the US, except we call them wiggers. I'm sure you can figure that one out.

I think I'll attempt to bring the term chav into the American lexicon. Just you wait, give it a few years.

Oh, and bollocks, I love that one too
