This monolingual Spanish dictionary provides the most authoritative reference to slang in the Spanish language. It is the authority to all aspects of non-standard Spanish, including popular, familiar, colloquial, vulgar, coarse usage, jargon, euphemisms, insults, cliches, solecisms, barbarisms, and religious oaths. This reference contains over 12,000 entries, providing definitions supported by over 20,000 citations. The dictionary uses a broad range of sources for the citations, ranging from literature to newspapers and TV, reflecting the full spectrum of contemporary usage in Spain. Where appropriate, bibliographic references are also made to the main works in this field, with the author often providing his own commentary on points of meaning and usage. The subtitle "El Sohez" refers to the Spanish term for vulgar, familiar and common.
