Cromosys Publication’s English Dictionary of Modern Slang book is an optimal quality guide to the beginners as well as advanced learners of English slang. This is an unmatchable and unique book of its kind that guarantees your success in terms of getting acquainted to the modern usage of slang words in current era. You may have seen many other books on slang but most of them are outdated and of no use because their junk of unacceptable, profane, and bad words creates a nuisance in English. Some lexicographers don’t know that there is a difference between slang and nonsense, and everything what is nonsense can not be brought into the social circumference of a language.

Giving utmost attention and care, spending fifteen years in research, we have harbored those words which are meaningful and having a base in the slang world.

First of all, I have to make it clear what is slang. Slang is a colorful and alternative vocabulary that bristles with humor, vituperation, prejudice, and informality. The slang of English is English with its sleeves rolled up, its shirts-tails dangling, and its shoes covered in mud. This dictionary presents a panoramic view of twentieth-century English slang – from Britain, America, Australia, and elsewhere in English-speaking world from 1950 until 2013. After spending more than a decade in research, I am convinced to say that in today’s world the people should have the knowledge of English slang also. One alone, being immaturely suggested, spend ages in watching movies and listening to the audio which helps them to imitate a little but not learn what in actual sense it is, and their never-ending process of Picasso Adventure collects some scattered information which is unworthy linguistic approach. And the aspirants get lost in wilderness. The world’s attitudes to the use of language have changed greatly over the last three decades, and the perceived boundaries between standard and unorthodox are becoming increasingly fuzzy, and so, slang is accepted and even in some cases embraced and promoted by mainstream society. Today, tabloid newspapers in the UK such as the Sun, the Star and the Sport regularly use slang in headlines and articles, while the quality press use slang sparingly – usually for special effect – but the assumption remains that readers have a working knowledge of common slang terms. A vast majority of people have come to see slang as their own common language, in which they are fluent, and which may therefore take precedence over the other varieties in their repertoires. The use of slang forms part of what linguists call code-switching or style-shifting or the mixing of and moving between different languages, dialects or codes.
