shawty

noun; derivation
Referring to a attractive woman or young girl; describing a girlfriend, or a friend or associate.
 
A term originating in Atlanta that, in the beginning, referred to a short person or child, but the span of the word has grown to include any and all people, especially a girl that is attractive. It is used as a greeting, farewell, like 'Wassup Man,' but instead of "Man", shawty is used. Also used in the place of peoples names or pronouns such as he, she, his, and her. It's the south's version of the word “shorty” or “shortie”. The most prevalent use, and the one found in songs by hip-hop/rap artist is not meant in a offensive way. It's something that's just real fun to say, like 'homeboy' or 'homey' or any other slang for a friend or girl.
Etymology : -aw- replaces –or- in shorty. Shawt + y(N)
