    Re: awesome!

    No.

    It's a useful word commonly heard in all English-speaking countries.

    I venture to suggest that it's overused in the USA.

    As far as I know, in American spoken language, it can be used as an interjection to show excitement:

    -AWESOME!

    It means the speaker is excited.
