    Default Slang search

    Hello,

    I'd like to know whether it's possible to look for usually words here in the slang section and find the words, slang, which fit the best to that word. I'd like to use slang when I'm writing lyrical things and it would making the search much easier for me and all the others.

    Would be awesome.

    Tetsuo

    It should be possible- you can do it in the phrasal verbs and the idioms sections, so we will do it. I'll forward your message to the webmaster.
