The word "Mate" is a word commonly used in Britain, New Zealand and Australia. It is also used by ethnic communities in Britain such as the East Asian community (India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka).

"Mate" is commonly spelled as "M8" in Text Language or LeetSpeak.
The word "Mate" can be used in a variety of ways, from greetings to flip-offs to sarcasm.

A week ago I was cycling home from work and this twat of a driver nearly knocked me off because he was desperately trying to get through the traffic lights. He called me a "Twat" and I shouted "Fuck off mate!" at him. This is just one example.

Here is a list of examples and situations in which "Mate" may be used:

Greeting: "Hello mate!"
Sarcasm: "Mate that was fucking orgasmic"
Endearment: "Mate you're a legend."
Flippancy: "Alright mate keep your hair on"

Get the Mate mug.
a word that is commonly used by irish males,generally between the ages of twenty one up to the mid thirties.

it is a word that has only come to light over previous years,and is generally used when a male does not want to become very well attached to another individual (another male) ,often heard in the workplace,a bar,a nightclub,on a street corner,a pool hall,anywhere really.

The word "mate" is used in a completley different way from its use in Austrailia and new Zealand,and also Great Britain,and is not to be confused.
