Ariella and Avital gave me a set of Slang Flashcards last night.
Here’s the marketing pitch:
“Do you want to be able to communicate with America’s youth? Does your proper English make you feel stuffy? Then you’ll be thrilled to see this set of 60 double-sided laminated slang flashcards. Combining the staid style of student primers with contemporary slang, these flashcards reverse to a pronunciation guide, full definition and sample sentence. Study up and you’ll be talking slang like ‘I can assure you that the Tupperware party will be mad (quite) crunk (entertaining).’”
One of my favorites is “Yo, lil’ dawg, daddy’s got to bounce.”
