A dictionary of human interaction, defining

their kids, for language learners confused by real-world English-but most of all for your entertainment. A from-the-streets explanation of contemporary culture and language available online at www.urbandictionary.com, in the pages of this book, or from any nearby teenager.

OUTS

Big ups to the peeps who made this project possible. To my agent, Sheila, who keeps the biz on lock; to my editor, r .ane, who kept my page� in check; to my profs, especially

Dr. Bensky, Dr. Turner, Dr. Battcnburg, and Prof. Stearns, who kept me on point; to my friends who always got my back, especially Dave, Jordan, J\tlike, Russell, Scott, Barrett, and Anna; and most of all

to

the 'rents, Doug and Brenda,

whose constant encouragement, advice, and support were clutch since dav one. '

After six vears of constant submissions, Urban '

Dictionary has become the first reference for everyday lanbtuagc. Dedicated and loyal users from all over the planet took time to write creative, entertaining definitions from their lives. Their words have now become an invaluable resource for the world. Props.

rban Dictionary has always had a life of its own-and that was always the point. I started urbandictionary.com in 1999 as an onLine slang dictionary with user-submitted definitions. Since its inception people have written more than one million definitions for 250,000 words, and today more ,

than

two

million people visit the site every month.

\Xlhat started out as a site where only my dorm friends tracked their regional slang expressions has turned into an ever-evolving portrait of the language spoken by millions of everyday people, every day. Today Urban Dictionary doesn't just track the creation of new language. It's become a hip hangout for a whole community, where people get a chance to explain how they use and change existing language to express their own views of the world around them. Urban Dictionary's users range from creatively rebellious teenagers who write openly about their lives in their definitions, to hip twentysomethings and thirtysomethings with unique and entertaining insights into the definitions of emerging words,

to

not quite so hip 'rents and teachers who

want to know why their lcids or students keep referring tO them as "hella bootsy," to serious students of the English language from all over the world. The content of Urban Dictionary has become the irreverent calling card of a linguistic generation. These definitions might be funny to some and offensive to others, but that's the nature of the urban beast. To those who can't take the linguistic heat. I can only say step off and chillax. Everyone deserves the opportunity to understand and be understood.

INTRODUCTION

As of this writing there are 250,000 unique words on the site, and it's the diversity and quality of opinion used to define these words that makes Urban Dictionary so popular. These are the true, funny, wry, angry, shy, intelligent, quirky, fresh, smart-ass voices of today, and they have a lot to say. Of Urban Dictionarv's one million definitions, I've chosen the '

funniest, wittiest, and truest submissions from the site's best authors. I chose some of these words because they reveal aspects of pop or

hip-hop culture, some because they live only in the online world, and some just because they're hilarious. I couldn't make them up if I tried. Urban Dictionary changes daily, and with every new definition it becomes a more accurate, funny, and insightful look at the world-your world. So for all of you who want to earn some .rtreet cre.d, for the urban illiterate newbie who confuses skank with shat�k, and for the slang speaker who wants to keep his game tg i bt, this just might be a good book to keep handy.
