‘This book fills a real need for an up-to-date, substantive, scholarly book on African American slang. The glossary itself is impressive, and the detailed description that precedes it, with discussions of the forms, meanings, themes and functions of slang words, is invaluable.’ John Rickford, Stanford University

‘Maciej Widawski has created a marvelous book about African American slang that exceeds expectation. Readers from diverse backgrounds, be they scholars or not, will find meticulous accounts of Black American slang described in cultural contexts that have heretofore been unavailable in a single volume.’ John Baugh, Washington University
