    Standard, informal, slang.

    What is the difference between these?

    Can you give examples, who uses them and where*?

    * I mean in work, written texts, daily conversations, at home....

    Re: Standard, informal, slang.

    Like most, I use all three. I'd use standard at work, or most of the time here on the forum. I use informal language at home and with friends. Slang isn't a whole was of speaking, but would be a part of informal usage.
