Latin borrowing meaning "in and of itself", used in certain fairly specific, idiomatic contexts in casual English. Is typically used with a negative to indicate that a term being used is understood to be imprecise or off-the-mark (i.e., not accurate 'per se') in a case where the term is nevertheless useful to an explanation. Usually followed by an explanation or justification for the use of the term indicated.

It is as well sometimes used preceding a term indicated, especially in more formal (e.g., legal) usage. In these contexts, usually used in the positive to reinforce a characterisation as fundamentally being the case (i.e., 'per se' accurate).
"It's not that I consider it a 'joke' per se. It's just that I don't think it takes the subject quite seriously enough, under the circumstances."

Perse has many defintions, the original term comes from the phrase persy; which is derived from the common pot smoker's term "smokin a persy bowl". The phrase eventually evolved when Asan began smokin persy chillum bowls (pcb) on the reg. He would smoke by himself and the term 'persing out' was dubbed.
Persing out can refer to the following things: Sleeping on the game, taking a brief nap, getting sick, not going out, not responding, and more pers-ituations.
We also use the term being perse. Perse can be used for the following situations: something personal, something of your own possesion, something you don't want to talk about, something that isn't 'chill'.
This bitch was giving me and her mom walked in, sooo perse.

Just goin to Rusko, back stage, on the perse.
