The 1920's is known by many names, such as The Roaring Twenties or the Jazz Age. It is also known for being the first modern era to emphasize youth culture over the tastes of the older generations. One example would be The Flappers who had a tremendous influence on main stream America. These liberated women had not only brought out a new fashion, but also lingo. Many terms used in the 1920's are still used today like blind date, java, beat it, along with many others.
