An Academic Look at METH

METH is a contraction of the word methamphetamine, which is used as a slang word. Slang refers to words, phrases and uses of language that are regarded as very informal and which are often restricted to a special context or a particular group of users.

A contraction can use letters of the fully expanded word in sequence (as with METH). Other contractions, like Dr, use letters from the start and end of the fully expanded version. Contractions can also be formed by replacing a letter or letters with an apostrophe (e.g., can't).
