Awe means “fear, respect.” It’s describes someone or something that is “revered and/or feared." The first testament uses the word “awe” often, denoting god or some higher figure. The traditional definition of awesome is to describe something as feared or respected as a higher being upon all others.

In today's slang, it means that someone is really really really really cool and amazing. The person that is awesome may suffer denial from their awesomeness.
Chase was sitting at home one day and realized that Taylor is not just awesome in today's slang definition, but actually in the biblical way too.

A 'sticking plaster' word used by Americans to cover over the huge gaps in their vocabulary. It is one the three words which make up most American sentances.
The American vocabulary consists of just three words: Omygod, awesome and shit.

5.
An overused adjective intended to denote something as "cool" or "great" but instead winds up meaning "lame." This is actually a reflection of the lameness of person using the word, the degree of which is directly proportionate to difference between the user's perspective of the so-called awesome object / person / situation and that of a reasonably sober, well-informed observer.
"Bono is awesome."
"This pizza is awesome" (when the pizza in question comes from a food court at the airport)

Although it's now used as another word for cool, it literally means something that strucks awe. Something so amazing, one is in awe seeing it. But like I said, nowadays it's used just like cool.
I was struck with awe when I witnessed men landing on the moon. It was awesome.
