【Word's meaning】

Slang is the use of highly informal words and expressions that are not considered standard in the speaker's dialect or language.

スラング(slang)は、特定のエスニック集団、職業、年代、生活環境、ライフスタイル、趣味、嗜好を共通にする集団の中でのみ通用する隠語、略語、俗語のこと。標準となる生活の中で喋られる口語に対し、スラングは一般性、共通性がなく、口語として通用しているものと同じ単語でありながら、さかさま言葉であったり、違った読みをしていたりと、敢えて一般人には理解できないような用法をするものが多い。
