Book - 1986
Rate this:
Like everything else in the modern world, slang changes rapidly. This Third Edition, the first revision since 1986, reflects the many changes in the vernacular the last decade has wrought, particularly those relevant to the advances in computer usage and consumer technology. As in previous editions, pronunciations, examples of usage, and explanations of origin are provided. The Dictionary of American Slang also identifies which words should be used with caution and never in polite company.

Whether surfing the 'net or browsing the Web, writing e-mail or snail-mail, here is what's up on what's hip and what's so five years ago. Helping spin-doctors, schlockmeisters, slackers, and Xers alike, for those hep-cats who never get the drift, this book is money.
