1. slang A road. The term comes from rhyming slang in which "frog" is short for "frog and toad," which rhymes with "road." Primarily heard in UK, Australia. She lives just down the frog on the corner—can't miss it. I think we'd better hit the frog if we want to make it on time.
2. slang A derogatory term for a French person. I'm not sure what my grandma had against France, but she very strongly believed that "frogs," as she called them, were not to be trusted.
