Summary

Summary

Textbook knowledge of a language will only take you so far. Most languages have a large amount of slang utilized by those speaking it. Here is a volume that lists approximately 4,500 common slang words and colloquial expressions. Entries include grammatical information, the definition in English, a sentence or phrase to illustrate usage, and an English translation of the example and, where applicable, a corresponding English slang expression. Each entry also identifies the word or phrase by type: student or youth slang, political slang, literary slang, and criminal and drug-related slang. Because of the nature of slang, this book might contain certain expressions that some readers might find offensive.
