Definitions and Phrases

Most of us are aware that different areas of the country have different dialects.

“Turns of phrase” we may never have heard before can become clear with context.

But, the same words can mean different things. The same phrases can have a completely different connotation.

And of course, each subculture has it’s own vocabulary.

The sci-fi world, the SCA world, scientists, doctors, all these communities have their own vocabulary.
So does the homeless community.

When I run across these words and phrases I’ll post something with “Def”, meaning “Definition”, in the subject line. Or “Phrase” if it’s a phrase.

Some of the terms and phrases may already be familiar to you from other subcultures/communities, some may be new.

I hope you find them interesting!
