    Re: Questionnaire

    But how do you know when the person was at school- if you don't distinguish this, then an answer from someone who studied in the 1990s will be the same as that of someone who studied in the 1950s, but the slang would be different.

    Re: Questionnaire

    What makes you think that there are/were slang terms for all those words?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: Questionnaire

    Native English speaker here. I have no "slang" or alternate words used for any of these, except perhaps "mother" ("mom or mama") and father ("dad" or "daddy").

    That's it.
