student asking question

I suppose we use the word "weird" a lot in casual conversation. But what would be good alternatives to replace it?

Native speaker’s answer

You should note that the speaker in the video actually says "weary" and not "weird." "Weary" is an adjective meaning to be tired, fatigued, or exhausted. It thus has a meaning quite different from "weird." However, to answer your question, you can use the words "strange," "bizarre," or "odd" to replace "weird." Ex: He's an odd fellow. Ex: This house is rather strange. I think we should leave quickly.
