adjective: weird

olj

The adjective for today is “weird”. This means the same thing as “strange”, but it is more casual. For example:

I saw a really weird movie last night. I didn’t like it very much.

My new co-worker is so weird. She’s always asking people what their favorite animal is.

I love that new store in the shopping mall. They sell a lot of weird stuff there.

Generally speaking, the words “strange” or “weird” are negative, as in the first two examples. However, sometimes  they can be neutral or positive in meaning, as in the third example. In that sentence, the person likes the stuff the store sells because they are unusual items, and that person likes that. In this sentence, the word “stuff” has the same meaning as “things”.
