So, I called Kami a sod and I'm having trouble explaining the meaning to him. Therefore I'm calling on all brits to give me their definition of the word 'sod' :D

 

From what I can gather it's heavily reliant on context and who you learnt the word from.

 

The best I could come up with is: it's meant in jest when someone annoys you for something.

From where I'm from 'sod' is a very mild curse, you're right it is a difficult one to explain and is reliant on context, for example, i would call someone a cheeky sod when they give me some lip (ie talking back to me) Sorry for the crap explanation  :embrass

Now I keep wondering which came first, sod as "drunk" or sod as "earth".  That is, did the did the drunk get that slang name because they spent so much time lying on the sod, or did the ground get that name from all the sods lying on it?

 

 

 

...and yes, I had to look up lay and lie usages.
