Ask AC

The Ask AC column gets a lot of mail, so I am not able to answer questions individually. Before writing, take a look for the word using our search feature - it might already be on the site. Questions interesting to a lot of people are most likely to get answered, though specialized topics do appear from time to time.

If you'd like to improve your chances, please include the information about where you heard the slang word and how it was used. What was the sentence? Who said it? Was it in a conversation, book, song or movie? And it might seem obvious, but the question should be about American slang.

Letters will become property of Slang City and may be published on our website and elsewhere.Your first name and country will be used in the column, but your email address will, of course, be kept private.
