Jargon Database

As I was looking up the correct usage of "zipper clause", I was taken by the Google Genie to 
Jargon Database. Think of it not as a standard dictionary, but a lexicon of various trades and professions. For instance, while I may know alot of police jargon, like "On the Job" means, employer as a sworn police officer, I sometimes lose the meaning of legalese. So having a spot to go and learn new words is a pleasurable deversion. I found this tasty Irish word: Sleeveen. Seems to some up alot of the Republicans that were swept out of office last night.
