This single word, used by children and teenagers everywhere, is incredibly versatile. It can be used ironically, sarcastically, or with raw enthusiasm. It can be shouted, whispered, hissed, and spat. It can be kindly delivered, or caustically hurled.

Basically, “bet” means the following:

“For sure!”
“Are you doubting my abilities?”
“Yeah right.”

If this doesn’t clear things up, don’t be surprised! It’s a completely versatile word that’s typically tacked on the end of a conversation to neatly wrap things up. A few examples:

“Yo, my mom’s reading The Gen Bridge…she knows what hentai is now.”

“You down for getting pizza at Venezia’s? Their honey hot wings are fire!”
