Slingo (slang lingo) expresses t only crystal clarity but simple truth. It is t always pretty, but it is the real deal. This is how Americans really talk. This is how we talk to our friends and also to our enemies. This is what we call Strait Talk. Homespun American lingo contains spin, sophistry, obfuscation. This anthology and collection of terms is about us.
