I'm not a foreign English speaker, I don't know many words and neither do I know many idioms, expressions, and slangs people use.

The word "shit" is undoubtedly one of the most difficult words I have ever learned. I still don't know shit about the proper way of using it.

 

I've learnt that if something is shit that means that thing is bad. However, if something is the shit then that means it's great. I don't quite understand how this stuff works.

If I give shit - If I give shit to someone, I'm insulting that person. But if I give a shit, that means I care.
If I continuously take shit then that means I'm being harassed by someone or someone's talking mad shit about me. But if I'm taking a shit then... well.. I'm defecating.

 

Shit can be divided into pieces of shit which have entirely different meanings. A piece of shit is something or someone that has incredibly negative aspects to them. It's never the whole shit, however.

If I'm a piece of shit that means I'm being a jerk. If I'm a huge piece of shit then that means I'm being a huge jerk. But if I'm the shit then that means I'm great.

 

English is a difficult language.

My god, he's slowly understanding the beauty of English.

For an Australian you'd practically need to know these since it's an extremely common thing. There really isn't a right or wrong way to use the term, however you put it people will understand it to an extent.

Yes I 100% agree being australian makes the english language 10 times harder though.

I haven't thought of the word "shit" like this before and now that I have I can understand your confusion lmao.

 

A simple way of explaining it is that the meaning of the word is really dependent on the context of which the word is said.

But that's just a theory a Hyperion theory

It's not just English.

Most languages have phrases or words that only make sense in that language, and can't really be directly translated to other languages.
