The Slang Wars
by Dwayne Phillips
Could we simply speak English? Could we try to speak in a way that makes it difficult to misunderstand?
It would be nice if we both simply spoke English and tossed in a few diagrams to illustrate our thoughts.
Slang? I may not know your slang. You may not know mine. We could see who can say the most slang that is not known to the other person.
I would win as I am older and know more. I read “The Hacker’s Dictionary” and know The Jargon File. (Have you even heard of those things?) Big deal, that won’t help us communicate.
So, could we both simply speak English and toss in a few diagrams to illustrate our thoughts?
