This is a blog about urban American slang and colloquial expressions. Some of the examples posted might seem to be grammatically wrong but I tried to make them sound like real people talking on the streets. So, some of the entries here are just for informal conversation.I may also post some unusual words or even expressions that usually don't appear in standard dictionaries. Entries accompany pictures to help you remember what words and expressions mean.
