1.NTC's Dictionary of American Slang and Colloquial Expressions Richard A. Spears
McGraw-Hill (June 11, 2000)
This is the perfect slang dictionary for young adults. Many of the 800 new expressions come from the Internet and submissions from college students. It is a dictionary in the strictest sense of the word. The 10,000 words are simply defined, with at least one usage example and the part of speech of the word. Some entries include pronunciation, but there is no indication of derivation or date of first use. The author has included terms that he believes are currently in frequent use.
Because so much of slang is derived from crime and vice, it is not surprising that many of the slang words deal with criminals, drugs, alcohol, and sex--fink, doobie, kegger, hook shop. The worst (ethnic) slang has been omitted, but there are a number of words with the warning taboo or objectionable. Slang of the nineties is represented by examples such as kevork ("to kill someone," based on the name for Dr. Jack Kevorkian), SYSOP ("system operator"), and a quarter page on keyboard Smileys.
The Cassell Dictionary of Slang [RBB My 15 99] remains the most extensive one-volume slang dictionary, but NTC's Dictionary will be a popular purchase in public, high-school, and academic libraries.
