teenybopper

Definition

Slang

  • noun a lively, fashionable teenager or pre-teenager. The word, originating in the USA sometime in the mid-1960s, began to be used in a condescending or derogatory sense in the 1970s and 1980s. (When used approvingly or neutrally in the 1970s, the term was often shortened to bopper.) The expression is composed of a diminutive form of teen(ager) and bop, meaning to dance or behave enthusiastically.
