I often hear people say "Shloonek" - what does this mean?
this is Iraqi accent. It's mean how are you? and If you want to trace back it origion:
Aesh loonak= ai sha'en laonok= أي شئ لونك= what is your colour
IF some one is good then it's obvious from the colour of his face and you can imagion how is the colour of his face when he is sick o_O
It's an informal dialect Arabic in many Arabic countries, and it means "How are you?".
