Dictionary of Contemporary Slang
Blackwell North Amer
Written by an expert on language, culture and communication, this third edition is a record of the use of slang since the 1950s, concentrating on terms current in the 21st century. As well as the definitions, there is a commentary on the way the word or phrase appears, where it comes from and who typically uses it, with in many cases authentic quotes or examples of usage. A result of research 'in the field', rather than in libraries and archives, this is the first time that many of the entries have been in print.
