    The word 'Thow'

    I was looking for the difinition of 'Thow' on Web.
    And I found this there.
    (I was tyring to post the link also, but due to my status it's impossible. But you can go to urbandictionary.com, and type
    thow, then it brings you the webpage. You can see those 4 sentences below.)

    Is there anybody that can translate these informal English to regular ones?
    I guess knowing informal forms of language is also important when we study other languages.
    Roughly these sentences can be understood, but not clearly.

    a.) We got so thowed with that bitch off dat 8ball you know we had to run train"
    b.) "Damn son that purple haze X northern lights 7 is some thowed ass weed, I'm thowed"
    c.) "We gon thow down wit dem bitch XXXX and see whats good when we thow they asses in the gutter"
    d.) "I don't give a fuck XXXX I thow my sets up in any hood"

    I have absolutely no idea at all what they mean.

    Re: The word 'Thow'

    Where did you read "thow" in the first place?

    It's usually best to leave slang to the subcultures where it develops.

    Re: The word 'Thow'

    I have no idea what any of those are supposed to mean, and judging by there high level of vulgarity, it's highly unlikely you'll ever need to know. In the future, please mask words generally considered to be offensive with * - f**k or b***h

    I wonder if you meant to look up "thou" originally and got derailed. I'd like to hope that's the case.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Vestcil, our expertise here is more geared to helping students with standard English.

    I don't think any of us is interested in spending time in decoding the latest street slang.
