Our book of English slang was created to help others better understand popular informal expressions in English. Remember that the English language is made up of many parts. Literal, phrasal, idiomatic and slang are just a few important elements. Learning phrases and slang have a few rules. First; forget what you know about the literal definition of words used in slang expressions. Slang expressions take on a whole new meaning and stand alone. Second; often a slang expression will have a literal equivalent. While this can be generally true, often, there is no literal equivalent. Third; speakers of English will often use a variety of statements to express what they would like to say. This might include a statement using a literal word followed by a slang expression or just the opposite.

Slang expressions used in everyday English are often based on regions, professions, age groups, trending topics in the news, movies and more. Slang expressions can come and go. They very often have multiple meanings. Using slang in the proper context is extremely important to avoid misunderstandings. American slang tends to change with the times and fashion. British slang tends to be based on old English with the addition of American trending culture. Remember that slang along with collocations, phrasal expressions and literal definitions can take on a completely different meaning when comparing British English with North American English. North American English is used by more speakers of English around the world. British English has it’s roots from the distant past and is generally more formal than North American English.

  • Billgreen54 Bill Green at Perfect English. Larisa School of Language Phrases in English can be extremely difficult to learn. One key to phrases is to forget what you know about each word in the phrase. Learn the phrase as a stand along word. Most phrases have a one word equal. 10 months ago
