Slang is a long-running subset of my language studies. I theorize that slang is how language evolves and a language is either evolving or it is dying. Just ask the Gaels or the original Latinos (Romans). Their spoken languages haven't changed in centuries.
A slang term from my 1960's adolesance which has been popping out of my mouth allot lately is, "Nunya." None of your business. It has been popping out of my mouth in regards to my recently deceased FIL. He was a serious Nunya Man. "None of your business" was one of his most used phrases. Well, none it all, Dear Sir. Your business ain't that interesting, anyway. I was just trying to conversate.
Anybody else wanna sling their personal favorite slang? Anything goes. Even the Old Saxon word for pound, "Fuck."
