    What does "booty" mean?

    Hi Everybody,

    I can't find the right meaning of booty in many dictionaries, I watched the American TV series called "Everybody hates Chris", the child said "please scratch my booty." Please let me know if "booty" is a slang? Thanks.

    Yes, booty is an informal word, if not slang and you should not use it in public.

    It is used for girls chiefly and it means "buttocks"

    Williamyh - it's not 'a slang', it's just 'slang' or 'it's a slang word'. ('Booty' also has another - formal - meaning; = stolen treasure (not just any old treasure - pirates have booty, but not legitimate financial institutions). Of course, that example might not be the best chosen, given the reputation of most bankers today.
