Gaur.

Halló.

I have noticed that when young humans talk to other young humans, they often call them “gaur”, even though this is usually not their real name. 

Like when you say:

  • "Ég hef aldrei séð aðra eins frysti-kistu, gaur", or 
  • "Ertu búinn að skila skatta-framtalinu, gaur?", or
  • "Gaur, það er kominn tími á að vax-bera þennan Barbour jakka."

It means "dude".

There are many different types of gaurar. The people who help me with this internet do not really know all of them, even though they are very clever.

A “klikkaður gaur” is someone who has just done something very interesting with his skate-board or his snow-board.

A “góður gaur” is someone who will buy you a bjór or drive you to töff places in an auto-mobíle. 

And “Gaurinn” means “The Dude”.

If you are a young person who likes to say clever things to your friends, this word can be very useful to you.
