1910s slang

After a good, long run, we have decided to close our forums in an effort to refocus attention to other sections of the site. Fortunately for you all, we're living in a time where discussion of a favorite topic now has a lot of homes. So we encourage you all to bring your ravenous love for discussion to Chuck's official Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Instagram. And, as always, you can still post comments on all News updates. Thank you for your loyalty and passion over the years. These changes will happen June 1.

Hi everyone!

I just signed up here looking for help writing because I'm writing my first book. My main problem is its based in the 1910s and I want it so sound authentic. I'm not familiar with any 1910s slang or lingo. The only things I know I know from TV or movies and as we all know most historic TV is about as authentic as Flava of Love. I don't even know where to search for this kind of thing. Google is no help at all. I don't trust Yahoo! Answers or Wikianswers at all. Is there anyone here who is familiar with this time period and can help me out?

Thanks a bunch!
