adverb; acronym
Modifies any adjective the same way the word ‘extremely’ does. ‘As fuck’ is a popular idiom used among young adults in informal settings. ‘Af’ was probably coined to avoid saying profanity outloud in public places where using the word ‘fuck’ would be condemned. It is very widely used because of this, and it enables people who do not like to use profanity to still use the expression ‘as fuck’ indirectly. Interestingly, ‘af’ is used both in informal spoken and written English. af can be pronounced as the individual letters or /əf/.
