American English slang definition

Slang is the non-standard use of words in a language and sometimes the creation of new words or importation of words from another language.

Slang terms are often particular to a certain subculture, such as skaters, or musicians.

Slang is used extensively in American TV, movies, music, literature, and in conversations among native English speakers.
