(lainie, lani)
inferior, worthless. These recent vogue terms are probably deformations of the obsolescent American slang 'lane', which signified unsophisticated, provin-cial or naive, and which was said to derive from the notion of a rustic living on a country lane. Originating in Ameri-can adolescent speech in the 1980s, these variants were adopted by young British speakers in the 1990s.
