Miami Slang: "Reffy"


Today's Word or Phrase is: "Reffy"

This word is used to describe someone who is a "refugee" or someone who has recently arrived to the U.S. But it's also used to describe someone who doesn't speak English or hasn't quite assimilated to the Miami/American culture yet. It's used negatively. It's definitely not a politically correct term...

Examples of How to Use the Word:

"I heard that he just came from Cuba like 3 months ago. He's so reffy."

"He speaks English pero like, he still dresses like a ref!"

"Bro...he's a ref and he's taking AP English. I'm impressed!"


Yeah, it's totally not a cool word to use. But now you've learned something new...

I like cheeseburgers and cheap wine.
