    ►►Re: Name for dialect specific words?◄◄

    I don't believe you have a reason to attempt to insult me?

    Dialect:

    I think that makes sense, right?

    Unless ozy was asking about meaning 1c, which is rarer afaik (and I'm not sure why he'd ask xD):

    in which case you'd be right. But since he already said "slang" and "jargon" didn't fit, I have doubts.
    And yes ozy, I am absolutely weaponizing your posts in a petty argument that is probably not honest just because I feel like it

    Also, technical vocabulary isn't pedantic, it's... technical. It's not meant to be used in "everyday sentences", unless your everyday talks are about regional language varieties or about philosophy (in which case your everyday talks are very interesting!). It's meant to express ideas more accurately than everyday language.

    Take that, admins.
    First two are 100 % wrong (check the definitions, they have nothing to do with dialects, they're about "language levels", and lingo is pretty vague and not exclusively about dialects). As for -isms, the only -ism dialect I speak is Communism.

    It may not be terribly commonly used, but the need for it definetly exists. This thread's creation proves that point.

    Meaning 2 is what you're looking for here. In French there are two separate words for the two meanings so it was easier :P
