The book has a unique classification system where slang terms are listed under key words. This allows similar slang terms to be classified together since they share the same key word. The format makes it easier to search for and discover most any term. Cross-references of terms are also included for easy reference.Today, especially, we see a surprisingly large number of slang expressions in books, magazines and other newsprint, as well as spoken in everyday speech. Slang terms are used so much these days, whether in print or in conversation, that it becomes essential to know and understand their meanings. There is no doubt that formal English is essential if you want to read and speak well. But if you want to read and speak well enough to get along, then you need to understand the non-traditional language of slang that one often does not learn in English class.The book is educational, as well as fun to read. And it’s geared for everyone, whether young or old, foreign or domestic. Readers will find the book very informative and interesting to read!
