    vege out

    I learned that Australian people say "vege/veg out" as slang to mean "do nothing and realax". Do other native speakers (such as American or British people) use it, too?

    It's certainly used in BrE, spelt "veg out". Note the correct spelling of "relax" as shown above in red.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Americans use it too. I wouldn't spell it vege, as my readers would read that unfamiliar word and think "veej".

    Re: vege out

    The -e is unnecessary- we use fruit and veg and pronounce it with a soft g, and the same is true of the verb.

    That is an incorrect spelling.
