Slang Down the Ages: A Historical Development of Slang

by JonathonGreen (Author)

Synopsis

This history of the development of slang is intended as an enjoyable guide for the writer, the student of words, the crossword-puzzle addict and the compulsive browser. A slang term may begin life with one meaning and then gradually take on another; and new terms are constantly emerging, while others disappear. The book tackles its subject theme by theme, taking Standard English words such as money , sex and alcohol , and tracing the development of their slang equivalents over the past 500 years.
