A three letter word; meaning, in, english, "hi" or "how are you?" or "what are you up to?" or more generally "WHAT?" or by coincidence meant literally "what is, UP?"

Pronounced, "wahp" not "wop" and though not correct pronunciation, if you are under the influence of stuff or accent or both you might do your best with, "woop" (as casual and lazy and kind of bassey as you can make your voice when you say it always). as the "uh" shound can be elongated — as well as tone lowered, for emphasis. To summarize, sounds like "'sup"-starting with a "W".
Conjugate: of "what-up?"; also it IS what comes out when you slur primarily "what-up?" or similarly "what? 'sup or "what's up?" or "what is up?" from either intoxication or talking fast due to hyperactivity and thinking faster than you can speak.
Like the word, "'sup", "wup" is in general a greeting, and depending on situation and volume and voice-fluctuation, becomes a question or general concern. The serious difference is that "wup" is not ever an open door to conflict. Whereas, "'Sup!?…" in the wrong situation and volume and voice-fluctuation, can pose opportunity for conflict.
That is an excellent example of the power of the exclamation, " W U P ! ! ! " ; because of the fact that, 62 words, can be clearly interpreted in an instant when this three letter word is used to determine a solution to a crisis or emergency… in less than a fraction of a second!!!
