The UCLA Dept. of Linguistics proudly announces the publication of
U.C.L.A. Slang 3, UCLA Occasional Papers in Linguistics, vol. #18
(1997) --a dictionary of over 1200 slang expressions in current use by
UCLA undergraduate students. The dictionary was compiled by a team of
twenty-four UCLA undergraduates under the direction of Prof. Pamela
Munro. 

Work on the dictionary began in a lower-division honors linguistics
seminar in Fall 1996, with nine of the students continuing editing and
adding to the dictionary in Winter 1997; final editorial work was
completed in Spring 1997. U.C.L.A. 

Slang 3 is the third in a quadrennial series of undergraduate slang
dictionaries compiled by students working with Munro (U.C.L.A. Slang--
later published commercially as Slang U.--appeared in 1989, and
U.C.L.A. Slang 2 in 1993). U.C.L.A. Slang 3 is not a revision, but a
completely new undertaking, in which the student editors present
current vocabulary specifically associated with UCLA. US $5.00 Send
