Cuh means "cousin." It is used in informal speech and online chat to refer to a "cousin" or, more broadly, a friend or associate, in the same way as words such as "homie" and "bro." It originated in African American Vernacular English (AAVE), but has since been adopted widely, both online and offline. The term is used to address someone in a friendly or familiar manner. It can also be used to express disbelief or amusement, depending on the context in which it's used. The exact meaning can vary based on the conversation, but it generally denotes a sense of camaraderie or kinship. For example:

  • "Cuh! Did you see that game last night? It was wild!"
  • "Cuh, you gotta try this new spot downtown; their burgers are the best."
  • "I can't believe he tried to pull that off, cuh! That was hilarious."
  • "You need to chill with all that noise, cuh. People are trying to study here."
Cuh is one of many abbreviations for "cousin." Others include, "coz," "cuz," "cuzz," "cuzzo," and "primo."
