Description
"Spectacular vernacular--delivered with fresh flavor." --Playboy "Hang with this slang and reep these righteous words!" This entertaining, highly readable book pulses with the vernacular of young Americans, tracing slang terms and expressions from the end of the nineteenth century to the present. In addition to alphabetical listings for each decade, it features fascinating word histories and sidebars about language and culture--jazz cat jive, the argot of Beat poets, gritty inner-city street talk, and other captivating colloquialisms.

In Flappers 2 Rappers, he presents more than just lists of words.
