List of CB Slang

CB slang is the distinctive anti-language, argot or cant which developed amongst users of citizens' band radio (CB), especially truck drivers in the USA during the 1970s and early-1980s.

CB and its distinctive language started in the USA but was then exported to other countries including Mexico, Germany and Canada. In the French-speaking region of Canada, the cultural defensiveness associated with the French language generated conflict and adaptation of the new loan words.
