Japanese Street Slang is the first and only exposé of the rough and ready, raw and down-dirty street language as it is used in Japan today. Here's how they really speak: The hustlers and high rollers, the teens and Tokyo yuppies, the gangsters and their ladies of the night. Witty mini-essays trace the fascinating origins of many expressions and the rollicking example sentences reveal just how and where they may be heard.



WARNING: Many of the expressions featured in this book are extremely potent. Beware of using them inadvertently—mass panic might ensue.

Synopsis:

A comprehensive, in-depth compendium of Japanese slang as it is used on the streets of Japan today. Besides acting as a useful tool to help non-native speakers of Japanese express themselves forcefully and colourfully, this book also offers the general reader amusing and informative insights into Japanese thinking and modes of expression. Usage examples clarify the circumstances in which the expressions may be used or heard, while brief explanations trace their origins or derivation. Peter Constantine is the author of "Comprehensive Dictionary of Japanese Slang".
