Are you new to Neopets and don’t have the lingo down yet? Or are you in need of a refresher course? Either way, my dictionary will do the trick. Each term includes an example of how to use it, so you’ll be a natural in no time! The “most popular phrases” are also included with some words.

“So what did you students do over the summer?”

“I pwned some faerie n00bs in the AC.”

“Where are my AC prizes?”

Asparagus: Adam’s one weakness; a vegetable guarded with Adam’s life

Example:

Yay, my 10th article! Firstly, I would like to thank each one of my friends. You Kreludorks are just as strange as I am, which makes me feel at home.
