A convenient form of speech where words are abbreviated, most frequently by adding 'ers' (or 'en'/'on' for some irregular nouns) to the dominant or most appropriate syllable.
The most commonly used brevvers words are thought to be:
Quidders (quids in)
Brevvers is thought to have been created around 2003 by a pair of writers from Sevenoaks School, Kent.
Misc: Brevvers is a useful tool for emphatic statments and can either be used in conjunction with adverbs such as 'absolutely' or 'completely'; or by stressing both syllables, and/or undulating pitch.
Owen: I'm hungers.
Art: What do you mean?
Owen: Hungers, as in brevvers for hungry.
Art: Hungers is not a brevers word. That would be completely ridders.
Owen: Well I think it is.
Don: Owen, that is not brevvers. For a start it is just not brevvers, and also it is uncommon if not unheard of that a brevvers word would have two different consonants in the middle without ending in 'en'.
