Have you ever seen Dolmabahce Palace in Istanbul? It’s big, I mean really big. When you want to describe the size of something that is very big, you can say it’s really big or very big or even very large. But using slang in English is always much more fun and colorful. That’s why today I want to show you 5 slang words that mean very big:

  • That wedding cake is ginormous. ← Ginormous is made from a combination of the adjectives gigantic and enormous. Something that is ginormous is really, really big.
  • That cruise ship is humongous. ← Humongous is also made from a combination of adjectives; huge and tremendous. Something that is humongous is also really, really big.
  • Those suitcases are pretty hefty. ← Something that is hefty is very heavy.
  • We went to the mega movie theater. ← Mega is prefix that means one million, like a megabyte. So we put mega in front of a noun to show that it is a very big thing.
  • He paid a whopping amount of money for that car. ← Whopping also means very big and is usually used to talk about a number or amount of something.
