The app American Slang Dictionary by Roberto Cagliero and Chiara Spallino is an excellent reference tool aimed to all those who have the opportunity to linguistic exchanges with the US world. The slang has become an integral part of the US language system and this dictionary provides the most comprehensive and updated reference to quickly meet the consultation needs of translators, cinephiles, advertisers, music enthusiasts, journalists, and anyone facing the everyday life aspects of an language in continuous evolution.
Special attention has been paid to the translations to provide a comprehensive meaning of a lemma, in its nuances and its synonyms. Particular attention has also been paid to the tagging of terms based on their specifications, such as IT, hip-hop and hipster culture, politics, sport, the African-American area, and many more. Also important are linguistic aspects such as acrospeak (the tendency to speak for acronyms and abbreviations, in typical American origin and then swept in Europe), the inversion phenomenon (that is to load a period of an opposite meaning to the original) and the proliferation of new words related to particular moments or historical events.
