- Slang

"Slang" refers to a deviation in language use, be it vocabulary or expressions, from the standardized form of a particular language. Technically speaking from a linguistic point of view, the word is not recognized. From a social point of view, we often view slang as a "lesser" variety of language use, often associated with dialects or accents. Slang often defines who the members are of an "in-crowd". It is a social marker.
