Slang: 1950s – present

A hurricane of slang for today. Below is a little table with key words  (in the very left column) and their slang versions as they were changing between roughly 1950 – present (click on it for better resolution).

Notes:

1) A few things are rather subjective (it is slang!).

2) I would not recommend to use them in your speech unless you are really sure you won’t offend anyone or won’t look silly, but this can be useful for understanding those strange words people keep saying all the time and fail to include in dictionaries!

What slang word in the table did not disappear over time?
