"baby" at the end of a sentence

"baby" at the end of a sentence

Have you ever seen the word "baby" at the end of a sentence?  Do you know what it means?

Usually people use "baby" to sound a little bit cooler.  It's also usually used as a joke and if used correctly, can make other people laugh.  I'm not sure where it started, but it's used quite a bit. 

If you've ever watched the Austin Powers movie, you have heard this happen.  Austin likes to use "baby" to seem cool and laid back.  He uses it a bit too much.

Always use a comma before the baby.  For example, "I love English, baby!"

Baby is a nice word. When you tell someone "baby", it means that you like him or her. In my country English is not mother tongue, but most of the youngs use it cause they want to be cool.

you don't use babe for women, English does not change the word for the gender of an object. a car is a car, a rose is a rose and they are neither "he" nor "she"

Baby is almost always used for referring to a female. It sounds really informal so you have to be careful of the context
