The following dictionary was created and written by Fred Lynch. It is part of a terrific website called "The Source" for youth ministry- helping youth workers reach kids.
A note from Fred Lynch, the editor of this dictionary:
This dictionary isn't so you can try to talk like someone you're not. But it is a good reference for those who are seeking to understand a piece of youth culture today. No ... every kid doesn't use all
of these words. But this is a comprehensive list of many of the words you'll hear, in part.
Two Things You Want to Know: Before you scroll down and check out our free dictionary below, you'll want to know two things: 1. You'll want to check out his brand new book What's a Fo' Sheezy (the picture to the right). This book is a great resource to anyone who wants to get a better understanding of youth culture and for anyone looking for discussion starters with kids. This book provides over 300 questions from slanguage to get kids talking, laughing, debating and thinking. 2. CLICK HERE to read an excerpt from this new book and find out more about where this slang comes from. Who is Fred Lynch?
This "slanguage" represents today's culture and many of the problems that go along with it. Although much of it is humorous, a good portion of it is very offensive. Many of the words are terms for sexual activity and drug use. Many of the examples given are common quotes from youth today- these quotes, although somewhat edited, can be foul or vile (sadly, all the below phrases can be said in a PG movie). I believe this dictionary has educational value in helping youth workers understand teen mentality and culture, but please do use discretion.

four-twenty (4:20) (420) (4-20)
1. n. Commonly known as the time to smoke pot. It has come to mean everything from the act of smoking, the stuff that's smoked, and the optimum smoking time. Because 99% of today's culture DOESN'T know what 420 means, it has become a code people use to identify and talk with each other without outsiders knowing. Also known for the date, April 20th, which is the day to smoke pot all day, "the hippie holiday." Most pot smokers use 420 for just that, but, this date also happens to be Hitler's birthday which most possibly connected to or resulted in the selection of the April 20th date of the Columbine tragedy.
Note: I get a large amount of emails trying to correct me, saying that 420 is actually the California police code for possession of marijuana. Sorry- but that's an urban legend. Here are the facts straight from the LAPD: "There are several codes of law in CA that dictate drug offences. The Penal Code(PC) and the Health and Safety Code(H&S). Most of the drug offences are covered by the H&S. There is no 420 H&S, there is a 420 PC and it is "Preventing entry onto Public property". We sometimes have codes that the dispatcher uses on the radio to let us know what kind of call we are going to, but it usually is the same as the code section. Here are some of the Marijuana charges:
11359 H&S Possesion of MJ for Sales
11360(A)H&S Sales of MJ
11357(B)H&S Possesion of less than 1 oz of MJ
