There are several degrees of intensity of drunkenness, ranging from a state of slight euphoria to total oblivion, which may be recognized by the way someone is speaking, moving and behaving.
In the English language, there are so many words (most of them are adjectives) describing different states of inebriation that it seems hardly productive to make any lists classifying all of them according to any criteria.
At the same time, speaking my native language, I don't need more than — let me count — eight colloquial adjectives to say to what degree someone is drunk. As for my second language, I do know some of them, such as tipsy, tiddly, tight, stoned, loaded and a few more, but…
Firstly, no dictionary provides sufficient information about the degree of acceptability of these words, depending on the group of people you interact within.
Secondly, I think that like it is in Russian, in English too, there must be a few most common colloquial adjectives that may be appropriate to be used in any company, to describe that someone is slightly, fairly, or extremely drunk.
So my question is this:
What might be some most common adjectives describing slight, fair, and extreme degrees of inebriation?
