Urban Dictionary is a crowdsourced online dictionary for slang words and phrases operating under the motto “Define Your World.” The website was founded in 1999 by Aaron Peckham. He launched the site to compare urban slang used by university students in the different parts of California. Originally, Urban Dictionary was intended to be used as a dictionary of slang, or cultural words or phrases not typically found in normal dictionaries. You can use it to look up the meanings of names, work, religion, and much more. Although not all definitions may be true, Urban Dictionary is a fun site and can be used for different purposes.
