    The most common word for slang in Spanish is jerga. Dominican slang is jerga dominicana.

    It was my understanding that jerga meant jargon. Slang is more related to argot.

    Here is the dictionary definition (word reference):


    http://www.wordreference.com/es/en/t...asp?spen=jerga


    jerga nf
    (habla de un grupo)
    slang n
     
    Los chavales hablan su propia jerga para que nadie les entienda.


    jerga nf
    coloquial (lenguaje técnico)
    jargon, argot n



    Es muy difícil entender este texto pues hay mucha jerga técnica.


    Based on the dictionary definition how is jerga not slang?
