Why Urban Dictionary Comes In Handy On The Witness Stand | Talk of the Nation

NEAL CONAN: Yeah, it’s a crowd sourced dictionary, obviously. But crowd sourced, doesn’t that cause problems?

GREG LASTOWKA (Professor of law at Rutgers University): Not really. I mean, it’s a question of fact what a particular meant in a particular context. And I think that Urban Dictionary is a pretty reliable way to find out what people think a particular word means. And there are some concerns about it, but it seems like it’s a pretty solid source of evidence.
