Предмет: Английский язык. This book is produced using paper that is made from wood grown in managed, sustainable forests. It is natural, renewable and recyclable. Despite its comic intent the material is a valuable trove of contemporary folk obsessions and I have tried not to duplicate it in these pages. It is communications technology in general and not only the Internet that is enabling slang, especially the most pervasive English-based slang, to globalise.

Dictionary of contemporary. A & C Black 앫 London. The Dictionary of Contemporary Slang is an ongoing project; a survey which by virtue of its subject must be constantly updated to keep track of new coinages and changes in the status of existing terms. The idea of a reference work as something sternly authoritative and unreachably remote from its users is outmoded; thanks to electronic communications a dictionary can now interact with its readers.

This dictionary's main concern is current-day slang, chiefly British and then American. Many of the definitions tell when a phrase came into being and also when it ceased being popular as, say, a phrase that was last used in the 1950s. Not many slang dictionaries tell when a phrase fell out of popularity, yet this is a valuable piece of information. In many cases the British use of a slang is compared to the American use: again, a valuable distinction. While I prefer using the slang dictionaries that concentrate on American slang, I wouldn't be without this one: slang jumps from one continent to another with wild abandon, so it's good to know the differences in meaning between one culture's use of a slang phrase and another culture's use of that same phrase.

Purchased for friend. I thought it just had to do with American Slang, but it included other countries. She said the introduction was very informative. It may end up being better, more comprehensive, but her interest was for American Slang. I may not have read the description fully.
