What do we call the person who follows the trend everytime it changes?
Would it be sassy, fancy...?
That's the word we see nowadays
Ok, thanks! So how about the other words I wrote in the 1st post, sassy and fancy, How do we use them?
Sassy = bold and spirited; impudent (American in origin and use; not found much in BE)
I really like Beatrice. She is so sassy.
Fancy = elaborate or highly decorated
Look at all those fancy cushions!
Impudent is not necessarily offensive.
And I very much doubt if Beatrice would be offended by being told she is sassy.
However, as I said, it is not a word much used in the UK, and the chances are that if you used it there [or to an English girl in the Philippines], the person did not know what you meant.
She's an English girl, right, but she isn't so grammatical in her English and her vocabulary seems so poor compared to the ones I chat here with. I don't get it. I used to think that every native English speaker, perhaps learned ones, are very good and accurate in this language.
What is the British counterpart of "sassy", if there is any?
