Japanese Street Slang
Japanese Street Slangis the first and only exposť 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.
