I don't talk to people outside of the internet, so I never hear words at all.

When I'm outside: I act like I know what he was talking about and I change of subject haha.
On internet: I use google translation ^_^

I may or may not look up the definition.

I may or may not already carry an outdated dictionary with me.

At the same time I will look at the sentence structure and the words surrounding the word to deduce what the hell is going on.

Okay or I can just give up and go back to sleep either way.....

I let the speaker continue in most cases in order to get the meaning of the word. If I still don't know, I sometimes just fake it.

The majority of the time you can figure out what it means with context clues.

I assumed asking for its meaning was a fairly standard thing to do.

I look at the context to try and figure it out and if i'm unable to I just ask what the word means. If I don't know what a word is then odds are it's a really uncommon word so there's no shame in asking about it.

Sometime you can just be honest and say that you dont know that word.

Immediately find words that sound similar...it must have the same meaning as one of them!! lol
