Slang

–  Slang  –


A Glossary of English Slang


This is a big subject to tackle so I’m not even going to pretend that this is, or ever will be a complete list.  Given the nature of Slang, and the fact that is it always changing and expanding (due mostly to music and movies) not even Google could ever have a complete list [Challenge!]  However – as with all the lists on GiveMeSomeEnglish!!! – there is a need and so I will do my part to fill it.

However!!!…  I absolutely will NOT attempt to explain or promote any Slang related to the *modern, so-called, “hip-hop” culture or anything coming out of modern-day Hollywood, MTV or anything with the pop culture of today’s youth…  I believe that 99.9% of it is absolute crap and is destroying the language and there-fore intrinsically goes against exactly what this website and all of my work stands for.

I WILL however be dealing with commonly excepted Slang which has “stood the test of time”, has lasted for at least two generations, and is used in modern-life in both casual and formal circumstances.

All terms are organized alphabetically by the term rather than by subject

*(It is completely understood that the majority of slang comes from the hip-hop culture, and before that, funk, and before that jazz, etc., the keyword I wrote above is “modern” – the shit that people call hip-hop nowadays is garbage and does not deserve the distinction of being part of this list, for one main reason… it’s just not “cool”…  and besides, I also said that the lingo’s gotta “been down” for at least two generations…  (read the fine print.)

 

P.S. l’il wayne (who can’t even spell his own name correctly and doesn’t deserve to be capitalized) ain’t got shit on The Beastie Boys
