Subject: Re: stoked
I've noticed that most of the responses about hearing "stoked"
come from surfing communities. Somebody from Florida, the original from
Hawaii, and I know I heard it in LA. Stoked means excited or fired up or,
(a good Scots term) chuffed.
I know AHD doesn't list it as regional, but does anybody know of
it being found anywhere inland? It may be in mainstream language, but is
it in non-coastal language?
