When I started doing transcripts for a state in the south that’s when I also began looking up meanings for some new words in the urban dictionary.

Main Entry: lingo
Part of Speech: noun
Definition: dialect spoken by a group

Synonyms: argot, cant, idiom, jargon, language, patois, patter, slang, speech, talk, tongue, vernacular, vocabulary
