The Random House Thesaurus of Slang is made up of 12,000 English words listed alphabetically; each is followed by one or more of the 150,000 slang words or phrases contained in this volume. That simple arrangement is what makes this book a useful tool for writers, speakers, students of language and anyone else who might need a quick and easy source of slang. It has been said that a thesaurus is a book in which you look up the wrong word in order to find the right one. That definition fits this book perfectly. As a thesaurus, it offers a convenient translation from standard English to its slang equivalent. It is by no means a slang dictionary, nor is it meant to be. Using this thesaurus, all or part of a formal English sentence can be rewritten in slang, something almost impossible to do using a slang dictionary. This is not to say that slang dictionaries should be considered superfluous. It is the basic premise that is different; a dictionary is meant to define words, but if the user doesn't know the slang word for which a definition is sought, a slang dictionary is reduced to little more than a volume for browsing. If anything, The Random House Thesaurus of Slang should make slang dictionaries more useful. Except in a few instances where the use of an obscure slang term is demonstrated, this thesaurus, since it is not a dictionary, does not define slang words beyond giving them a formal English synonym. For a more precise definition of the words found in this book, a slang dictionary should be used. In a sense, this volume is similar to a foreign-language dictionary in that it "translates" formal English into the language of slang. To some readers slang can seem like a foreign language and, like a foreign language, there are times when it doesn't translate exactly. The same word or phrase can differ subtly in meaning in different contexts. In an extreme instance a word can be its own antonym; for example, baddest can mean "best" or "worst." While attempting to determine the right formal synonym of a slang term, we often asked which formal English word was the one most likely to occur to a reader searching for a slang synonym. For example, it is not likely a reader would .think to find pot likker under the entry residue. Soup stock was more credible. Therefore, for some entries, precision has been sacrificed for ease of use. Where a widely used slang term is not easily translated into standard English, the slang itself is listed at the subject heading. Such a case is blind date. The slang in this collection is based on actual usage culled from a wide variety of sources, such as newspapers, magazines, fiction and nonfiction books, television, radio, trade papers, industry, casual conversation. For the most part, the slang terms in this thesaurus are in current general usage; however, the reader will also find many of the most recent words appearing particularly in the language of young people, technical workers and politicians. In these pages, most readers will discover unfamiliar words and phrases, as well as old words with surprising new definitions. All of language was once "nonstandard," until the invention of the printing press created the need for standardization and inspired the first dictionary. Slang also originates out of need. New words are continually coming into the language, to stay only as long as they are useful. No attempt was made in this book to rule out "vogue" words. Deciding which of these words are merely passing through the language and which are taking up more-or-less permanent residence was not part of our editorial criteria. Slang is created by all social classes in every kind of circumstance as a more convenient, more private, or more entertaining means of communication. Groups create their own language within a language. The various kinds of slang are a means of identification. Peers recognize each other through its use. Slang is a way of belonging, of "speaking the same language." The word slang itself is said to have once meant "to be abusive." And much slang is abusive, chauvinistic, irreverent, profane, and sexually explicit. This book includes all types of slang, uncensored. For better or worse, this is the slang commonly used in America today. Experts in linguistics disagree among themselves over matters of definition, and they are certain to disagree with some of the definitions in this work. It is a risk anyone who prepares such a text must take. In those instances where it can be pointed out that we are in error, corrections will be made most gratefully, but for the moment, what the reader finds within these pages is as close to the correct usage of slang, colloquialisms, and the American idiom as we could presently determine. —Esther and Albert E. Lewin

"See also" references provide a broader selection still. 1. members of the clergy—anyone who deals with the expression of ideas through words. " In addition to the listing of slang synonyms under a particular word. Still another refinement is offered to aid your search for exactly the right word. the thesaurus also offers a broader selection of words to assist you in finding exactly the sense you seek. A semicolon separates specialized references from the general: such words might refer only to males as opposed to females or might differentiate activities from objects. you find a wide range of choices.

If you don't find the word you are seeking in the first group. BASIC n." or "Freedom of speech is the nub of democracy. See also PERFORM." "See" references offer a broader selection of slang synonyms." Number 2 provides a selection of "act" words. coal and ice. allowing the reader a choice of synonyms without having to look further. no two words carry precisely the same meaning and it is no different with slang. where exact definitions are often as varied as the locales in which the words are used.
