Announcing SlangMaps on The Online Slang Dictionary

Slang use varies by country and even by areas within a country. Who uses what slang? Before, you'd have to read linguistic journals. Not any longer.

The Online Slang Dictionary now features SlangMaps: interactive maps that show you where slang terms are used.

Visit The Online Slang Dictionary at to click, drag, zoom in, and find out whether it's okay to say "hella" in New York or "y'all" in California.

Let me know what you think.

P.S. The maps were created with submissions I've already received. Soon you'll be able to put yourself on the map. Stay tuned.
