The UK Web Archiving Consortium

I am pleased to announce A Dictionary of Slang has been invited to assist with a collaborative experiment to archive UK websites. The project, run by a consortium of six leading UK institutions, including the British Library, is a test-bed archive. Full details available at UKWAC. Visit the archive listings page for this site.

Slang words and language articles

'A Dictionary of Slang' presents a new word arena. At this early stage it will remain accessible via this news page only until there are enough articles to make it worthy of its own indexed page.

Change in terminology

Expressions previously listed as colloquial (colloq) are now indicated as informal {Informal} in keeping with the notation standards set by The New Oxford Dictionary of English. Informal or colloquial expressions are not slang, but words and phrases accepted in ordinary speech and familiar conversation. They are not accepted as formal or literary.

In the news

Thanks must go to discerning editors of the British Press, including The Daily Mail and Sunday Times, who have previously reviewed 'A Dictionary of Slang' in their respected rags. Similarly, stateside, the U.S. press mentions include the New York Times.

Published articles often fail to come to my attention, should anyone happen across such reviews, please inform Ted Duckworth with the details (we all need our egos massaging from time to time).

Alternative domain

'A Dictionary of Slang' has now taken the step of obtaining a dedicated domain. Unfortunately lethargy and cash flow concerns have previously prevented the purchasing of the most simple domain name choices, such as slang.com or slang.co.uk, so for your future reference the next best option is www.dictionaryofslang.co.uk and although lengthy, it is I hope memorable.
