Product Description

Counter language is a dialectical form of language that is constructed in opposition to another, more formal, or “official” language. Parlayed as a means of social discourse, counter language codifies the liminal and secret norms of counterculture, which is often hard to translate or understand. Philippine Slang and Gay Dictionary is a daring and fearless incursion into the endlessly inventive counter language of Filipino gay and street communities. It decodes the syntax and semiotics of Philippine slang and gay language in order to fully understand their meaning. Dictionary entries are accompanied by ancillary information including etymology, usage notes, and example sentences to enrich the reader’s understanding of words that both entertain and boggle the mind. Join us on this wonderful and amazing journey that will take you to a world of fascinating counter language. While Philippine slang and gay may not correspond to formal linguistic syntax, and may even sound outdated or alien with most words being a hodgepodge of English, Spanish, Japanese, and other languages, any form that this language takes is always vigorous, colorful, and historical. This is your Philippine Slang and Gay Dictionary, which will open the door to a world of words that teach, challenge, amuse, frustrate, sadden, scare, deride, praise, and at the same time raise your eyebrow to the highest level.
