Passer-by: "Nah, sorry im all out"
Ned: "Sound mate"
i) An individual who might be considered "cool", or generally very likeable.
ii) As to say, "All is well"; "Very good" etc
i) "How ye' doin'?"
"Sound man, sound"
"You see big Davie? He's sound."
1. A noise.
2. A synonym for "cool," "awesome," originating in Liverpool, if I recall correctly. Either way, it's mostly used by Scousers.
Note: Please stop complaining about how we're getting the definition wrong, you yanks. Try looking it up on Wikipedia or on Google, you blithering twats.
- "Did you hear that sound, dear?"
- "The footy was well sound, weren't it, our Baz?"
- "You self proclaimed 'grammatically correct' yanks are not sound."
Something that is good.
Yeah, that Simon, he's sound, mate.
used in agreement with someone or about something, a reply to someone as a form of yes, yeah and so on.
dude thats sound as!
thats totally sound
ah sound count me in!
Sweet dude thats sound!
1)anything/anyone who is cool,good, okey doke, particularly in the sense of being trustworthy/reliable etc etc.
when someone/something's really, really 'sound' you say they're 'sound as a pound.' ie they're so sound, they're as trustworthy as the wonderful british currency!!! that's one hell of a compliment.
2) moaning, losing your temper over something. ( as in 'sounding off')
1) some people don't like that girl, but i think she's pretty sound actually.
- that's my best mate over there. he's sound as a pound he is.
2) she's sounding off about some crap no one cares about again!!

in a footy match:
"did ya see that kick? that was sound!"
rele cool phrases it can be used in:
"he is as sound as a pound!"
