Slang is the use of highly informal words and expressions that are not considered standard in the speaker's language.

  • A particularly fine example is Army Slang which is incomprehensible to civvies.
  • Another fine example is Foreign Legion Slang which is just as good.
  • An especially poor example is jack speak used by our naval and marine brethren which is incomprehensible to all.
