I love how most of this isn't even slang. It's just basic katakana vocabulary. You want slang, you gotta go for PINPON! or OHA! or Nyappy!

PINPON! - When you can't decide between two things. Meant to resemble a needle sticking up through the middle of something like a speedometer.

Oha! - From a Japanese talk show. (Dated.) Shortened way to say ohayou.

Nyappy - Look up An Cafe. Learn about them. Not going to say anything more. ~_~

lol .
things to consider though :
they use 'l' as 'r' ,
no 'c' in their language ...
And .. they usually have 1 or 2 or 3 (like tsu or chi) letters per syllable .

Three - Suree - (Romanji: San)
Two - Suu - (Romanji: Ni)
Page - Peeji (Gorgeous 4U from Special A)

agree agree... those aren't slang.. they are just imported words from other countries, that's why they have the sound of the words. and if you write them out in japanese, most of them are in katakana. most of the words listed are of english (i guess it is easier to recognise the words) , but there are also of other languages.

slang are words like what loveislifeless have listed...

conclusion : THOSE ARE NOT SLANG AT ALL......

p.s: sorry, if this comment have offended anyone...

I don't think this is Japanese slang. I think that that's just the way that Japanese people pronounce foreign words.
