9781482749007: Talk the Talk: The Slang of 67 American Subcultures

America is rich with subcultures that have knowledge, celebrations, and language all their own. Talk the Talk opens a window onto the language and ideas of these groups. Whether you read it for entertainment, for reference, or to learn about subcultures that catch your interest, Talk the Talk is a unique resource that provides clear, descriptive, carefully-researched definitions for terms like ... simp heister: A ferris wheel, probably so called because the ride "heists" (hoists) "simps" (simpletons, an unflattering term for carnival patrons). meat theater: Live theater productions with live actors. The term is used to differentiate them from puppet theaters with puppeteers. rock solvent (synonym: chemical persuasion): Explosives used to open cave passages. ... and thousands of others. This second edition is expanded and newly illustrated, with 162 images of subcultures and subculture terms. Apart from its entertainment value, it's a reference for writers and for anyone interested in better understanding the variety and creativity of American subcultures.
