Slang - colourful, inventive and frequently irreverent - is the stock-in-trade of everyday speech, and this newly revised edition of Jonathan Green's Slang Thesaurus, containing over 4,000 new entries, will help you make the most of it. Ranging from topics such as crime, religion and travel, to drink, money and sex, it is entertaining and informative, and will prove invaluable for anyone intrigued by slang or keen to find a slang equivalent for a particular word or phrase. Arranged thematically, with a full index that includes both slang and non-slang references, the second edition includes hundreds of recently coined words and expressions, and contains entries not only from the UK but also from the US, Australia, South Africa and other parts of the English-speaking world.
'Highly entertaining... Every slang phrase you've ever heard of is listed here - and probably thousands you haven't.'
