3rd ed.
— National Textbook Company; McGraw-Hill, 2000. —
577 с.
The revised and updated third
edition of this comprehensive slang dictionary has more than 800 new
expressions. Realistic example sentences—provided for each sense of every
entry—show how expressions are used in current, everyday American English.
Pronunciations and cautionary notes are provided as needed, and a Phrase-Finder
Index helps users locate entries quickly.
This compact and well-formatted
book features more than 8,500 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 more obvious
terms such as nervous Nellie (any nervous person), naw (no), what the heck
(it doesn’t matter), and square (old-fashioned) are included too. And now
available in softback, this volume represents a great value-for-money addition
to your bookshelf.
Данный словарь представляет собой сборник сленговых
и разговорных выражений, часто используемых в Соединенных Штатах Америки.
Словарь содержит, как выражения, известные большинству американцев, так и фразы,
используемые главным образом небольшими группами людей. Словарные статьи
освещают выражения, встречающиеся в речи преступников, студентов, сёрферов,
наркоманов, проституток, чернокожих американцев и т.д. Наряду с этим, словарь
содержит выражения, которыми изобилует речь обычных людей. Нецензурные
выражения, метафоры, игра слов и различные фигуры речи – все это вы найдете в
данном словаре.
