I was told that "tülinorija" is Estonian slang for a "guy prone to fighting". Is there a shorter way or ways to say this term? Please let me know. Thank you. D:

Explanation:
Dictionaries suggest bully, troublemaker, broiler, fire-eater, scrapper, vixen etc., you have to decide yourself if any of these fit.

"Someone likely to pick an argument" would probably be a better explanation, as there needen't be any physical aggressiveness involved.

And it isn't really a slang word.

Cannot think of anything much shorter. "Riiukukk" is more informal and a few letters shorter :)

"Kakleja" is someone who specifically tends to fight physically.

No, they are not slang, I am not aware of any universally understood slang words for this.
