Slangopedia: what’s all this then?
We hope to help both English and Greek speakers make heads or tails out of expressions that cannot be found in conventional dictionaries: guys like a confused translator who wonders “wtf is a cardiac friend?” (καρδιακός φίλος) or an amateur excursionist who wonders how to say stoked in Greek.
- Our Greek-English glossary includes almost 4,500 entries.
- Our English-Greek glossary includes over 3,000 entries.
This is an ongoing project, all comments and feedback are welcome and will be credited!
Translatum.gr: a badass multi-lingual translation portal, which also includes Greek-English and English-Greek forums dedicated to slang terms and expressions. Ask anything, and an enthusiastic community of professional and amateur translators will respond in no time.
Magic search: probably the ultimate translator’s multi-language meta-tool, scouring every conceivable e-dictionary on the net, and then some.
Slang.gr: a comprehensive Greek slang dictionary, collectively drafted by its members. I helped moderate it for over five years, and have contributed 1,257 entries. I was eventually banned by some of its moderators due to differences in style and politics.
El.slang.wikia.com: a fairly new wiki-based Greek slang dictionary.
Lexilogia.gr: offers several multi-lingual translation resources, including a cool forum.
Disclaimer: slang can be a cruel, offensive and politically incorrect language. This site does not condone or advocate the use of some such expressions, but slangolexicography is a dirty job and somebody ‘s gotta do it…
