Throwd

noun; zero derivation
Definition: Throwd, Thoed, Thowed; (1) stylish, cool, great, good; (2) Intoxicated, “smashed”, “messed-up” from drugs or alcohol; (3) looking bad or out of style Throwd Zero derivation from verb throw to adjective throwd as in stylish and cool or even bad (strange combination of amelioration and pejoration), also generalization an extension of the verb from thrown (like a projectile) to throwd like intoxicated). Origin: I first heard this word in November of 2005 through my co-workers. However, there were citations as early as October of 2003. With the three different spelling variations and the three almost contradictory definitions this word is rather complex. I believe it to have originated in the African-American lexicon and to have spread from there gradually. The spelling change followed the pronunciation of the word, the word is mainly spoken not written.
 
Usage: “Diddy is lookin throwd with all his ice on.” “I was throwd last night after the club, I was sick all night.” “She’s looking throwd in that tired old jacket.”
