9780026053501: Concise Dictionary of Slang and Unconventional English: From a Dictionary of Slang and Unconventional English by Eric Partridge

The English language is in a state of perpetual change and "Partridge's Concise Dictionary of Slang and unconventional English" presents a snapshot of its state into the nineties. In this concise edition, Paul Beale continues the tradition begun in Eric Partridge's "A Dictionary of Slang and Unconventional English", while making it particularly relevant to our understanding of the language of the present day. More than 1500 new terms have been added - coinages of the 1980s that had not yet come to light when the unabridged edition last went to press in 1983. Like its parent volume, the concise edition provides a account of the vivid, racy, and informative elements of our language, documenting the living history of English and social history of the twentieth century.
