    Блин

    ok.... so i know it translates to 'pancake' -

    but i see this word used alot on russian message boards outside of this context....

    what does Блин mean as a slang word?

    It means expression, like "d@mn!", "sh#t!" or so... I think it appeared first like censored version of "Бл#". (там на конце должна быть "я")
    Please, correct my mistakes, except for the cases I misspell something on purpose!

    Not at all, it has nothing to do with that!

    Oh, really??! May be you can explain the slang meaning of this word for tendu then?
    Btw, I'v meant the appearance of that meaning, not the word itself.

    Well, I wouldn't be so critical. I think that Basil77 is right in saying that блин can be used as a substitute for expressions like дамн, щит (looks cool!!)) etc. but you're right - though partly. Блин is also used to mean the following:

    -И он, блин, представляешь себе, пошёл всё-таки туда.
    -Can you imagine that he eventually went there????

    I don't think that you can put 'd@mn' or any other synomym of 'd@mn' for that matter, in the above sentence.

    But we could put "Бл#".

    That's right. I think that Бл% and Блин are interchangeable in the majority of cases.

    To be honest, I couldn't fathom what you meant by 'shoot' for some time. I even had to consult an English dictionary to discover that 'shoot' means 'sh*it' in American English.

    Definitely. frankly, I am much more interested in British English. Anyhow, it's useful to know both American and British dialects.

    Shoot - эвфемизм.

    Блин -- тоже эвфемизм.
    Я вспомнил, как мы в детстве, если кто-нибудь говорил "блин!", говорили в ответ: "Не блин, а оладушек".
