  1. By: Teara Gass Colloquialism “How’s it going?” and “What’s happening?” are colloquialisms for “How are you?” Definition – words or phrases that people use when talking to each other aren’t used in formal language.

  2. Examples of Colloquialism She was recently dumped by her fiancé.(Dumped is a colloquialism for breaking up with someone, because instead of saying “I’m breaking up with you.” most people say “I’m dumping you.” Some forms of colloquialism are “y’all” or “gonna” or “wanna” because those are words we use when talking to other people that aren’t formal language.

  3.
