Subject: Queries: _Am. Tongues_ & Slang
I'm one of a few Introduction to Language instructors at Georgetown who's
heard that USIA put out a short version of _American Tongues_. I'd be
grateful to know how we could borrow a copy of this version of the film,
since the original is too long for in-class use.
We're also thinking of having 50-75 first-year students produce a
dictionary of Georgetown slang. I'd be grateful for information on good
recent college slang dictionary projects besides UCLA's _Slang 3_ and -
for how-to tips - the opportunity to correspond with anyone who's recently
done a similar project with undergraduates.
