The Studies in Slang monographs are a forum for the detailed discussion of slang items, an activity of worth both in itself and for the insight it can bring to broader issues in linguistics; we deal here in particular with the study of language in its social context. Attention is also drawn to the importance of the extensive files on Americanisms compiled by the late Peter Tamony.
