Editors Note An updated, categorically arranged dictionary of American slang and popular culture features more than ten thousand entries that cover such topics as the Internet, extreme sports, the drug culture, politics, entertainment, business, and more, along with introductory narratives and sidebars that reveal how terms and phrases relate to the subcultures that spawned them.
Editors Note 1 Slang is evidence that the spoken language is continually changing to meet new needs for verbal expressions, tailored to changing realities and perceptions. Unlike most slang dictionaries that list entries alphabetically, Slang takes on modern American English one topic at a time, from “auctionese” to “computerese”, the drug trade and sports slang. Slang was originally published by Pocket Books in 1990 in paperback (ISBN 0671672517, out of print) and revised in 1998 in hardcover and paperback (ISBN 0671549200 and 0671549197; hc out of print soon after publication, pb in print until 2005). The new Slang has 50% new material, including new chapters on slang associated with work cubicles, gaming, hip hop, and coffeehouses. Dickson brings slang into the twenty-first century with such blogger slang as TMPMITW, which stands for “the most powerful man in the world” (the president).  Whether you want to be privy to the inside banter of the boardroom, backroom or the Washington Beltway, Slang is an indispensable resource, and a lot of fun.
