List of police-related slang terms

This article has multiple issues. Please help improve it or discuss these issues on the talk page . Many slang terms, often considered offensive, exist for police officers. These terms are rarely used by the police themselves and instead are used by criminals, prisoners or even by the general public.

"Many slang terms, often considered offensive, exist for police officers. These terms are rarely used by the police themselves and instead are used by criminals, prisoners or even by the general public.

Police services also have their own internal slang and jargon; some of it relatively widespread geographically and some very localised."

"In general when you first start cooking, utensils don't seem to be that important. Thinking (like me at my beginning) "Well, a pan is a pan, it's all in how you use it". But it's not that simple.

Utensils are very important, almost like quality ingredients, because they allow you to make the recipe in perfect conditions, as the author intended. If you use poor tools and your recipe goes wrong, it will be almost impossible to know where the problem lay. And for your working comfort, it's much easier to work with good tools.
What's here?
On this page you will find information on tools that you can use when cooking. They are separate in two categories : the "10 essentials", those  I think you must have in your kitchen, and the others."

(EN) - Glossary of bridge terminology | University of Iowa Libraries

(EN) - Glossary of bridge terminology | University of Iowa Libraries | Glossarissimo! | Scoop.it

"The present glossary is a partially rearranged version of the "Glossary of Terms" which constitutes Chapter LXXX (pages 1892-2115) in Volume II of J.A.L. Waddell's "Bridge Engineering" (New York : John Wiley & Sons, Inc., 1916.) The rearrangement was undertaken to make the HTML version more efficient as a reference tool.

The terminology presented in this glossary represents usage on and before the original publication date of 1916. As Waddell noted, many of the terms are those used by the people who were active in building bridges and are not formal "dictionary terms." The definitions and concepts are not necessarily the same as those in use today and are not therefore recommended as examples for modern writing or practice. A few of the words would hardly pass muster in a more enlightened time, but I do not hesitate to include them since they had specialized meanings that required explanation then and even more so now.

The original text was scanned with an HP Scanjet 3500c and recognized with OmniPage Pro 12. No attempt was made at this stage to correct the text. Rather, it was saved in rough form as a text (.txt) file. Further manipulations took place in Microsoft Word. Corrections to the text were made manually, referring to the original in all cases of doubt. Equations were set using Microsoft Equation 3.0 and were saved separately from the rest of the text. Embedded illustrations were scanned into Adobe Photoshop Elements 2.0, and processed to improve clarity and reduce noise. The illustrtations were saved as GIF files optimized for Web display."

"This page is a glossary of stone structures that are often found in the woods of New England. These structures can be of many eras and origins, and its not always easy to determine what is what. There seem to be Native American structures, both pre-contact, historical, and modern, as well as Colonial and Neo-Pagan structures. Further, some of the structures seem to indicate a pre-contact Native American activity not recognized or allowed by modern archeologists.

The following Glossary is entirely my own. I define things based on what I have seen and researched myself (with a tip of the hat to Mavor & Dix). It is almost entirely illustrated with structures I have personally seen or found - mostly in Nashoba Valley - and my notes and comments are my own personal interpretations. The Glossary is not meant to be definitive or conclusive - indeed, I am more interested in letting the pictures speak for themselves then in crafting long definitions. It is my hope that the images will inspire others to investigate these things, or at least have a greater appreciation of the unusual stone structures found in the New England woodlands."

"31st of July was Joanne K. Rowling’s 49th birthday. On the 8th of the same month the author released a new short story on her personal website, Pottermore. Titled “Dumbledore’s Army Reunites at Quidditch World Cup Final”, the tale is written in the form of a gossip column by Rita Skeeter, and supposedly takes place several years after the end of the characters’ adventures. Adding to that, on the 23rd of July was also Daniel Radcliffe’s birthday. Undoubtfully this month should be dedicated to Harry Potter.

So, if you are like me at all, you probably already know everything there is to know about the best-selling stories of Harry Potter and have also watched the films several times. However, if you are just starting to get interested in the story or were too young to remember the Harry Potter frenzy at its peak, do not worry. Here are some things to get you started with, so that you will not feel left out during conversations about ..."

"You may well have noticed that whilst a garment shape may not alter greatly over hundreds of years, the name of a garment or fabric may differ from period to period. Listed here are common costuming garment names and a brief, simple description thereof.


For a complete compilation of costuming and armouring terms, try Much of this information came from the excellent A Dictionary of English Costume 900 - 1900 by Cunnington & Beard, along with other books, sources and documents I have come across."
