刻录 ke4lu4 (to burn, eg. a CD)

My various dictionaries gave me four or five ways to say 'burn' - none are used here. The word 'in the street' is 刻录 kèlù (to burn, eg. a CD).
The only on-line source that came up with this is MDBG.

This "heard it on the street" thing has me thinking of some words I've "heard on the street" but they are not really appropriate topics of discussion here.. haha.. but they are stil, all the same, as fascinating as these ones that you have been highlighting.. :)
That is very Chinese of you to self-censure .. c'mon, now we want to know what you have to share.
Well.. uhm.. no.. I can't.. haha.. I just can't say those sorts of things here.. haha.. this is a G-rated, family website.. even though I know that, behind closed doors, even the most strictly polite people will have a bit of a giggle about such words.. :)
And that is essentially how I heard them, from people sitting around having a beer and exchanging words for things not normally spoken in mixed company.. haha.. How else are we meant to to learn all these "colourful" words.. words that are just too naughty to even say here for learning purposes.. :) haha

makes sense... I just looked it up on www.nciku.com - it is on there and translated as such.
I've also heard 刻盘 being used to burn discs.
