The Language of Cities: A Glossary of Terms.
Abrams, Charles; Kolodny, Robert
This glossary identifies and defines approximately a thousand words, terms, and slang applied to city life. Three goals exist for this limited glossary: 1) identifying some of the most relevant urban terms for the expert and layman; 2) defining them simply and accurately, expanding on the definition where clarification is necessary; and, 3) adding the author's personal opinions or biases where he considers them useful and relevant.
