Silly brits think that slag is a noun when it is clearly a verb. Also, why is a place in the southern hemisphere called a "Bakeplace" @Louis Hypo?

The sun is closer to the South Pole than the North Pole which inspired a friend of mine to make that up. Also what is the definition of 'slagging' then?

Slag means to make fun of someone. Although it's a bit more harsh than that. Also, it's winter here, so that means that the south pole is facing away from the sun and therefore the north pole is closer. In about 2-3 months or so the south pole will be closer though.

Interesting. I have never heard the word "slag" here in the US.

We use slag in the same way but we say slag off rather than just slag.

Why does the word slag have so many different meanings in different places?

I think we use it quite a bit purely because saying slag in an Essex accent is very satisfying.
