Prison slang

Via Eddy Webb, a look at (but sadly not all of) a modern prison slang dictionary compiled at Bonne Terre, Missouri. So the bit in The Chronicles Of Riddick differentiating Prisoner and Convict as terms of address has a basis in fact, for example. And verbing nouns has happened as well, in the case of Jail as what you do when in jail. Something to add to a crime plot or possible prison-based adventure.
