9780764138614: American Slang Dictionary and Thesaurus

This unique reference volume is two books in one: a dictionary of slang and a slang thesaurus, with both sections treating the same words and phrases. And this is one poshed up volume! Entries are arranged alphabetically in the dictionary and thematically in the thesaurus, and include definition, pronunciation, part of speechÂ--and origins, usage information, and usage alerts when applicableÂ--in both the thesaurus and the dictionary. All entry words are visually coded to help you distinguish slang that is potentially objectionable from other slang, and all synonyms are coded for the level of formality (formal, informal, no register) and separated by part of speech. This gives you more information about the potential effects of your word choice on your audience, so you have a much better chance than with a Â"regularÂ" thesaurus of picking the right word for your particular context the first time. Graphics and brief articles are added to show you slang Â"under the hoodÂ"Â--the patterns and features that characterize slang usage. With this book, youÂ'll be able to find out how the screaming meemies got their name, why someone might be offended if you use the apparently inoffensive word crumbs, which words that mean Â"to killÂ" also mean Â"to cause riotous laughter,Â" and easily distinguish whether someone is an old fart, a son of a bitch, or just a silly ass. Here is a handy reference book for students, word buffs, and professional writersÂ-- a title that merits a place in every reference library. Printed throughout in two colors.

From the Inside Flap:

(back cover)
Two books in one

  • A dictionary of slang --words and phrases arranged alphabetically
  • A slang thesaurus --words and phrases arranged thematically
  • Every entry includes definition, pronunciation, part of speech, word origins, usage information, and usage alerts where applicable
  • Entry words coded to distinguish potentially objectionable slang

  • Illustrations, articles, and thematic groupings illuminate how slang works
    A handy reference source for students, word buffs, and professional writers
  • Review:

    "As one-volume slang slingers go[this book] has a number of features in its favor. Chief among them is its tripartite construction. Part 1. . . is a straightforward A-to-Z of slang words and their definitions. Part 2 is a thesaurus . . . including interesting possibilities . . . . Part 3 serves as a mini-primer on linguistics. . . . This volume is user-friendly, clearly written, and very affordable, qualities that make it a solid addition to most libraries." --Library Journal
