What he say???
The Vietnam war developed a new
language, Namspeak or nam'spk.
It was a combination of military terms, GI slang from World War II
and the Korean War, flavored by Southern US and Urban Ghetto
terminology with various Vietnamese words or terms thrown in for
good measure. You would frequently hear someone new in country (FNG's)
trying to follow a conversation, ask: "what he say?
Although some of the language has
been filtered to alter some of the "more colorful"
terminology, the concept is still there, so please use judgment if
viewing this page with a minor.
