Expression of mild pleasure or congratulations. It is generally used as a reaction to either a statement or an event of some sort. As this is a word of mild pleasure it is general deemed inappropriate for statement at orgasm. It is also, sometimes used as an understatement when congratulating one on something if used in a sarcastic tone, especially if the event being congratulated is disadventageous or unpleasant to the user. (not intended for use as an adjective)

Historically, it is widely believed to have originated on the television show, Batman Beyond. However, some believe that it is merely a word that naturally forms under certain circumstances in all English-speaking cultures. Many people have found themselves asked where they heard the word, but have no idea where, and have not even seen Batman Beyond at all. Some even believe that the word "shway" is capable of attaining wide usage in english-speaking cultures that have never had contact with the outside world, given enough time. General these people are considered to be insane by the scientific community. Even more shunned are the extreme minority who believe that "shway" is not a word at all, but the name of a non-corpreal entity that is desperately seeking recognition through the manipulation of the minds of the human species.
Correct usage:
"Dude, I just found twenty bucks on the walk up to the loft!"
"Shway."
Other correct usage:
"I figured you might want some too, so I bought an extra twelve-pack."
"Shway."
Incorrect usage:
That was shway..."
Other incorrect usage:
"Oh my god! I'm about to.... Shway!"

Awesome, cool, great, good, well done. An alien slang from the Steven Spielberg series "Invasion America" that aired on The WB in 1998. This origin influenced the usage of the word in the later WB cartoon series, Batman Beyond, and even later in the more recent incarnation of The WB, The CW's "The Flash" series.

The term is often used by the character Cisco, as he is an avid science fiction fan and Spielberg buff.
