Slang is what I like to call a "language phenomenon." It's derived from our basic languages and broken down into specific dialects related to each region. For example, where I'm from is known as the "DMV" (DC, Maryland, and Virginia). We have our own dialect that's exclusive to our area. Some of the most popular slang comes from the DMV, and other areas of the nation like New York, and Atlanta have slang that really stands out.
