Big Things In Juba Jive



bigmama60Bigmama60 on 06/23/2007

BigThingsInJubaJive Photo I like discovering the etymologies of words, no matter how elusive they may be. I sometimes become fascinated trying to unravel the indefinable.

So here are a few slang words taken from A Dictionary of African-American slang edited by Clarence Major. Most of these slang words probably you’ve heard before; but never thought much about how they originated into the American vernacular.
So have fun, and please rate it after you are done.
