Dang, one of Tampa's favorite slang terms!

<<< Back to Slang USA Cities Map
(interjection) Wow; dammit

It can show annoyance, excitement, surprise, and a range of thoughts and feelings depending on the context and the rest of the sentence.

Lindy: Dang that boy is hot!

Taryn: He sure is!  I might ask him for his number.

Lindy: Hands off bitch, I saw him first!

Taryn: Dang you’re touchy!  Chill!

It can also be used as an adjective, as in “get your dang hands off of me”. It is a more polite way to say damn, and as well as being heard in general speech is also very popular in cartoons.
