Product Description

Product Description

The "Official" CB Slanguage Language Dictionary is now available for Kindle readers. This New York Times Best Seller about CB radio lingo has sold over a million copies since its release and continues to be the standard reference for CB radio jargon.

C.W. McCall of “Convoy" called The ‘Official’ CB Slanguage Language Dictionary the CBers “Bible”. And Lanie Dills, the author was called the “Webster” of citizens band radio Jargon by People magazine.

From its first publication date, the radio lingo book was extraordinarily and immediately wildly popular as a way to quickly pick up the CB lingo used by citizens band radio enthusiasts. It is easy to talk trucker slang with the best big rigger on the expressway when you have this handy reference guide beside you.

If you don’t know how to “rachet jaw” (talk CB slang) yet, or if you just want to be able to use the cross reference to translate English into CB jargon, this CB talk book will get you up to speed in just a few minutes.

Did you know there are at least 22 ways to say best wishes and 72 different terms for law enforcement officers? And there are almost 100 different ways to “sign off. And almost every city from “Shakey City” (Los Angeles) to the “Dirty Side” (New York City) also has at least one CB slang name.

Here are a couple examples of a typical CB language conversation:

1. “Wipe the bugs of your plates, We eyeball a roller skate funny bunny at the mixing bowl. Use the jake to double fiver.”

Translation: Watch out for police coming from behind. I see a Volkswagon at the cloverleaf which is a police car in disguise. Slow down to 55 mph.

2. “Brush your teeth and comb your hair”

Translation: Police radar ahead, slow down to avoid getting caught by radar unit.

CB jargon is fun to use, but you need to know how to use it to join in the fun and avoid the embarrassment of being laughed off the road by the 18-wheelers.

This is Citizens Band colorful Jargon From A to Z including a complete cross-reference. It is easy to use and is the perfect reference for new Cbers and also for skilled “rachet jawers” that may have missed a CB term or two.

Also included are the:

· “10 Code used by law enforcement officers
· ‘Official’ Ten-Code
· Q-Code
· 13-Code

If you are going to “mojitate” on the “boulevards”, get the #1 Bestseller, The ‘Official’ CB Slanguage Language Dictionary including cross-reference. You’ll be able to “jawjack” with the best of them. Oh, before I forget, CB handles (CB nicknames) are a good idea. Pick yourself out a good one before you start to key the mike.

Even if your primary goal isn't to specifically know the official CB slang, the words in this book are very entertaining to know.

As a professional over the road driver of 20+ years, she knows what she's talking about. In fact there were a few that I wasn't familiar with. I enjoyed it immensely!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars CB Slanguage Language Dictionary 18 July 2013
By anchoredlady - Published on Amazon.com

I have this on my Kindle. I used to be a active CB user and found this a fun read. Yes there is a language used by all CB users. Brought back a lot of memories. I took a lot of trips using my CB as a travel information tool. It amazed me how much I learned about human nature while on the channels. I learned trucks transport live fish from hatcheries to release points and Atlanta is the largest distribution point and manufacturing area of peanut butter, lots more via my CB. A must read for new CB users.

It's funny how the slang is used in this book. I would never have put two and two together. I wonder if I use it on the cb if they would actually understand me.

For a person who has never owned, much less used a CB this book has been great. It's a dictionary in the truest sense so don't expect any trucker adventure stories.
