replacement for really
originated in Salem MA because of the witch trials. changed the word meaning from bad to really to promote tourism and eliminate their bad name.

used more freqwently in Massachuesetts than other New England states.
-DID NOT ORIGINATE IN F***IN MAINE
-do not use if you weren't born and raised in New England. it's just common curtasy, we dont go around saying "ya'll"

Modifier, often for an adjective, used primarily in New England, especially Massachusetts, also Maine and the UK. In its traditional MA usage, "wicked" will ALWAYS precede another word, a true New Englander will never say merely "That was wicked." In cases of extreme emotion, it will often be preceded or followed by "fucking."

traditional: Sean of the Dead was a wicked good movie.

extreme: I am wicked fucking pissed that Lost hasn't been on.

Mutiple usage: Fucking Batman Begins is a wicked fucking excellent movie.

In serious duress: Fucking Johnny Damon is a god damn wicked fucking traitor. Fucking Yankees. I hate the fucking Yankees a wicked fucking lot.

new england slang. it originated in boston, despite what those NH people say. they have credit for the "massholes", thats it. it means "really" or "very". it's the north east's y'all; other people make fun of us for saying it, but we say it constantly anyway. i guess it could be considered an adverb?

saying a band is good makes them sound alright. saying they're wicked good makes them sound awesome.
"its wicked hot out today."
"that biology test was wicked hard!"
"that kid is wicked gay."
"all time low is wicked awsome!"
"i had to babysit this wicked annoying brat on saturday."
"that was wicked mean!"
"it got wicked quiet just now..."
"that was a wicked awkward silence."
Wicked: Apparently, according to Prisoners of Azkaban, the only word in Ronald Weasley's vocabulary.
"That was wicked, Harry!"
