Summary
"McGraw-Hill's Dictionary of American Slang and Colloquial Expressions, Fourth Edition, provides complete definitions of thousands of slang and informal expressions ranging from golden oldies such as catch some rays and take the fifth to recent coinages like shizzle (gangsta), jonx (Wall Street), and ping (the Internet). Each entry includes one or more examples illustrating how an expression is used in everyday conversation. Wherever necessary, International Phonetic Alphabet pronunciations are provided. And throughout, cautionary notes alert you to crude, inflammatory, or taboo expressions." --Book Jacket
