What does Dying mean?

Laughing extremely hard

‘Dying’ is a popular slang expression you might hear when someone is laughing extremely hard. So much so, that it feels like they might die because they’re laughing so much!

Ever laughed so hard that your belly hurts, you’re gasping for breath, or tears are streaming down your face? That’s when you’re likely to use the term ‘dying’. It’s an exaggeration of course, but it’s a fun way to express just how funny you found something.

Typically, ‘dying’ is used as a quick one-word reaction to something hilarious or entertaining. It’s often seen in text messages or online chats. So, next time you read or hear someone say they’re ‘dying’, don’t panic! They’re probably just having a good laugh.

Interestingly, ‘dying’ is similar to another slang term, ‘dead’. Both are used to describe intense laughter, but ‘dead’ is usually used when the funny moment has passed and you’re left feeling exhausted from all the laughter.
