I'm searching a slang dictionary that tells you from where is the slang word (from USA, UK, Australia...)

I just did a quick Google search and found this. I don't know how good or how complete it is as I'm not familiar with it, but I reckon it can at least be of some use. Otherwise, there's this, which is a general dictionary, not specialized in slang, but it does include many slang words and provide geographical information where applicable.

What Australian slang word did you use to check if it was there? Just curious. :)

I know an Australian slur, but I'm not going to say it. But it's technically slang...I guess?

How is that supposed to hurt anyone? Australians and their lame insults.

yobbo, bogan, sheila, (cobber, although that isn't contemporary Australian). I just also checked: bozo isn't there or piss up, but westie is. Drongo is another old fashioned word, blotto, drop bear.

Well, being compared to an ape isn't exactly flattering.

Thanks. I had forgotten that Australians like creating words in -o.

For some reason, "yobbo" is labeled British and the geographical origin of "blotto" isn't mentioned.

That's so lame and useless.

Please try to make the referents of your pronouns clear. What is so lame and useless? The orangutan insult? Another of the words mentioned? The dictionary?

What I said before. It’s such a joke of an insult.
