Slang of the Day ( 13 Sep 2017 )


Meaning: to make very negative comments, to strongly criticise

For example:
– British newspapers nearly always rubbish local sports teams when they don’t do well in international competitions.
– Why does that guitarist in Oasis always rubbish other bands? I don’t think I’ve ever heard him say anything nice about another band, except for The Beatles.

Variety: This slang term is typically used in British English but may be used in other varieties of English too.
