    Default The word "slang"

    What is the translation for the word "slang".

    Some things don't translate exactly, I wanted to let a friend know that it is english slang. I wasn't sure how to say this in spanish though.

    Thank YOU,
    Michael

    It does not have quite the same zing to it, but what do you think of "argot", or "dialecto"?

    How about "expresion idiomática"?

    Hope it helps

    Another option could be "lenguaje colloquial"

    Good luck!

    The word "jerga" could be another option for the translation of "slang".
