9781861057280: Britslang: An Uncensored A-Z of the People's Language, Including Rhyming Slang

Slang is an integral part of the English language and has been so for the best part of 200 years. The most popular belief is that it began as a secret language of the underworld, formed to confused the peelers and the casual eavesdropper. The truth is that although the origins of slang are confused, it is part and parcel of our way of speaking, with new words added every year. Do you remember a time before dot coms and the net? Have you ever bunked off, or told a porky pie? If you have, then you'll know that this country has a whole other language, a perverted English that is so commonly used that many of us forget that we are already proficient. Ray Puxley describes this as Slanguage and in this fascinating book he lists all of the gems that we regularly use and many that some of us might not know the meaning of and which are recorded here for the first time. BritSlang is a humorous, full-frontal approach to the language of the street, the bar and the underworld. Sound as a pound, you'll never get in another two and eight with this useful book by your side! About the Author Ray Puxley is a true cockney, being born within the sound of the Bow bells. He writes a regular wry look at life column for the Romford Recorder and is the author of the successful Cockney Rabbit (1861057296) and More Cockney Rabbit (186105730X), recently revised in paperback and available from Robson Books.
