About this title


An authoritative aid to demystification, this dictionary enables the reader to unravel the jargon of our age - the welter of specialist occupational slang ranging from deliberately deceptive euphemisms for unpalatable practices to genuine "professional" terminology. Containing around 21,000 entries, the dictionary encompasses a wide range of fields and includes extensive coverage of both British and American jargon.
