NTC's Dictionary of American Slang and Colloquial Expressions - Richard Spears
This compact and well-formatted book features more than 8500 contemporary slang and informal expressions. With 800 more entries than the previous edition, this third edition includes street slang, popular culture terms, and the telegraphic language peculiar to the Internet.
Arranged alphabetically, entries include usage information, slang type or source, and additional information about whether the term is, e.g., objectionable, derogatory, or standard English.
The entries for some difficult or unpredictable words may include pronunciation information. The alphabetic arrangement is augmented by a phrase-finder index and Go to/See also references.
If you don't know the meaning of expressions such as Baldwin (a good-looking male), Vietnik (someone who opposed the Vietnam War), or face time (time spent face to face with someone), this book will explain.
Some obvious terms such as nervous Nellie (any nervous person), naw (no), what the heck (it doesn't matter), and square (old-fashioned) seem out of place.
Dictionary of Contemporary Slang - Tony Thorne
Rife with ribaldry, with an amusing contrast between tart words and cool, analytical definitions, this book may mobilize the censors. A typical entry has variant spelling or wording, geographical range, meanings, and comments--often guesswork--on tone, nuance, associations, social context, history, derivation, and related words.
Pronunciation is sometimes left unclear. A few slang styles, such as backslang and pig Latin, are noted. Published as the Bloomsbury Dictionary of Contemporary Slang in Britain , this work covers Britain, the United States, and Australia well, other English-speaking areas lightly.
The author, a lexicographer, draws from the media and personal observation of such users of slang as hippies and Valley Girls. Recommended more as a fun reflection of speech in recent decades than as definitive scholarship.
Sex Slang - Tom Dalzell, Terry Victor
Are you a beaver cleaver or the office bike? Would you rather pack fudge or munch carpet? Do you content yourself with paddling the pickle as you’re still a cherry boy?
Sex Slang will not only give you 3,000 words to talk about your favourite pastimes, but also open your eyes to practices you didn’t even know existed. All words are illustrated by a reference from a variety of sources to prove their existence.
This naughty book will give you a spectacular sexual vocabulary from all over the English speaking world, as well as hours of reading pleasure.
The Concise New Partridge Dictionary of Slang and Unconventional English - Tom Dalzell, Terry Victor
For libraries not wanting to invest in the two-volume New Partridge Dictionary of Slang and Unconventional English (2006), here is a handier, scaled-down version.
The hundreds of thousands of citations found in the parent dictionary have been excised, but all of the slang terms remain, and some new terms have been added. - Mary Ellen Quinn.
1811 Dictionary of the Vulgar Tongue - Captain Grose
Reprint of the author's Lexicon balatronicum; a dictionary of buckish slang, university wit, and pickpocket eloquence (and now considerably altered and enlarged, with the modern changes and improvements, by a member of the whip club.
The Official Dictionary of Unofficial English: A Crunk Omnibus for Thrillionaires and Bampots for the Ecozoic Age - Grant Barrett
If you'd rather be schmooping or gurgitating, then slangmeister Grant Barrett has the dictionary for you. The Official Dictionary of Unofficial English collects hundreds of undocumented and underdocumented words like the ones in his subtitle:
A Crunk Omnibus for Thrillionaires and Bampots for the Ecozoic Age. Barrett's entries are not mere barroom fancies, but terms you can find in print and on the Internet, scrabbling for a foothold in the mainstream lexicon.
Will Trashcanistan, any poor Middle Eastern country or Central Asian republic, hang around in the slang lexicon? Will ridonkulous follow humongous into general usage?
For readers who want to be on the cutting edge of the English lexicon or for dedicated word geeks, The Official Dictionary of Unofficial English presents more than 750 words that have unofficially joined the English language.
These words are hot off the street, new even to cyberspace, and definitely not found in Webster's. Each entry features a definition, etymology, and at least three citations from print and the Internet that show the evolution of its meaning.
