No sense of humor! Sep 1, 2003

I posted some fun stuff from the website today in addition to my regular answer - just for fun - but a couple people gave me "neutral" grades because they didn't think it was applicable.

Too serious

Barrack, Down Under and Up Over Sep 2, 2003

Thanks for the link to the Aussie slang dictionary.

I see that in Australia,"barrack" means to cheer on (a football team, etc.)
In UK English, it means exactly the opposite - to insult, jeer at (a politician, boxer, football team etc. - except that in football it is often an individual player rather than the team which is barracked).

For anyone wanting a very concentrated up-to-the-minute dose of American slang, this site might be worth looking at:
http://www.vodkatea.com

The online community on this site is described as "people sharing their private vernaculars".

...Well maybe it will develop and become more interesting. At the moment it looks like too much teenage stuff.

Great collection! Sep 2, 2003

I am bookmarking all of them. It was a great idea to post this forum!!

And yes, we do need some sense of humour even in kudoz. The other day I answered a question with a funny story concerning the work asked. I gave no answer really, it was only meant to be funny, and I even received a few "agrees"!! =^D

To Rita, and all –

1. Chicklit: the library is a top place to hang (it all) out: slang, jargon, idioms, clichés...and more.
http://www.chicklit.com/library/libraryslangetc.html

2. BuzzWhack: (US) Focuses on "de-mystifying the buzzword of the moment" – tons of slang expressions and jargon, like this one:
"buzz.whack.er (buz´wak er) n. A person who receives some degree of pleasure in bursting the bubbles of the pompous."

One more for the collection Sep 7, 2003

This is actually a whole site dedicated to British English for Americans. Of course it has also a slang dictionary, just look for the link in the left menu:
www.effingpot.com/index.html

I found it looking for an explanation for "Porky Pies", which lead me also to a nice little online game:
www.amherstlodge.com/games/porky_pies/index.htm
Unfortunately they give no explanations, why a certain answer is right.
