    It is a type of informal verbal communication that is generally unacceptable for formal writing. It consists of words and expressions which will not be found in the dictionary, and can be distortions of existing words or entirely invented terms. It is used in informal situations. It is not appropriate in formal situations.

    * Who uses Slang? *

    Slang is used by all kinds of groups of people who share situations or interests. The group which uses these words is always in the minority, and often uses slang to set themselves apart or make it difficult for ordinary people to understand them. When a particular new expression is known and used by a large majority of the population, it is no longer slang, but part of the regular language or usage.

    Note: Slang and Informal English are NOT the same. Some slang can be used in formal situations, and some of the words that can only be used in informal situations are not slang.

    * Examples of Slang *

    Chill out : Relax

    Bad : actually meaning Good

    Whack : bad, unfair

    Dude : Person, mostly man
