    You might find some useful stuff here: Slang Research and the Slang and New Language Archive :Slang Archive & New Language :King's College London
    It's Tony Thorne's page at King's College- he wrote the Bloomsbury Dictionary of Slang.

    Can anyone send me some WORD documents on this work. Probably someone knows sites where there scientific works on the expressions in the language of British youth. Differences between American and British expressions. Not only that, but all other things. Thank you

    Current #British slang - Google Search

    Current British slang use - Google Scholar
