I've seen this word used three times today.
Can anyone describe a chav to me
Council House and Violent.... Thats what I was told it stood for in Sociology.
Chav = Bordie :001_tt2:
rona as a kid that grew up in the medway towns ( and i'm 59 ) the term chav has changed so much. when i 1st met someone i would always say," hi ya chav or hi ya mooshdede". ( sp) cos i'm a chave. pmsl.
chav = yobs, neds, trakkies , white lighting , gobby, acts hard etc.....
Ok, so I saw (after typing out and posting, to then delete) a message explaining "chav". Saw a dog related reply then deleted in panick of looking silly. But it seems you may have meant what I originally thought. So...
When I was a child I was a chav, because my Dad called babies chavvies!
Chav is a derogatory term applied to certain young people in the United Kingdom. The stereotypical "chav" is an aggressive teenager or young adult, who is usually, though not always, of working class background, who often engages in anti-social behaviour, and is often assumed to be unemployed or in a low paid job. It first appeared in English dictionaries in 2005. The term Charver is more widely used in Yorkshire and North East England.
Response to the term has ranged from amusement to criticism that it is a new manifestation of classism. One BBC TV documentary suggested that "chav" culture is an evolution of previous working-class youth subcultures associated with particular commercial clothing styles, such as mods, skinheads and casuals. The term has been associated with juvenile delinquency, the ASBO Generation and yob culture.

LMAO... your teachers don't have a clue. i class myself as a chav but i wasn't raised on a council estate. pmsl but my house is ex coucil.:lol::lol::lol:
I live in a council house and i have staffies!! Not so keen on fake burberry and gold jewellery though.
Chav means uneducated and ignorant.....:001_tt2: Lol
Just to clear it up I don't quite agree with her definition of the word!! But she was adamant thats what it stood for.... I don't think she lasted very long as as teacher though.
o and chav = NED = none educated delinquent
CHAVS just fopr the record came from CHATHAM...but as we say chatuuuum.
I guess I would be considered a chav. I live in an estate and my mother is disabled so she's on benefits.
I would describe a chav as someone who is a thug, has no regard for others, causes trouble and doesn't want a job.
Are there any other words that describe a certain type of person and what do they mean?
Chav here means
Tracky teenagers, chain smoking, normally has hair pulled so tight thier eye lids are in thier hair line, tracky bottoms tucked in socks, Fake burberry, lots of gold, swearing is the only words they know, If its a girl there is normally a baby with ears pierced, gold chains aswell in mini me tracky with a bright pink or blue pram which normally is the very very cheapest one, headphones or just a phone playing loud music,hanging around in a large group with some cheapy beer. Normally have a "hard" type dog
Oh and a cant work/wont work attitude
My father married his "gold-digging" bit on the side. Does that count?
Nope that's an old one, I know that and the meaning :001_tt2:
A chav is usually someone wearing a white tracksuit with loads of fake 'bling' be it diamond cubic zirconia things, gold etc. They are what I class as chavs, people ignorant of others, immature, arrogant, rude etc. They do often has this cheap look, its cheap because its meant to look expensive with all the gold etc but its fake and picked up off a market for 30p so
Just the young yobs of today really, not like myself of course :
