On my shelf – Slang down the ages

To get a really good feel for a period in time its important to do a little research. For me, that just means I can feed my habit of offering books a good home, a safe environment where they will be loved and stored correctly. Seriously, I couldn’t be a librarian – I’d never let the darn books leave!

Slang Down the Ages


Slang down the ages by Jonathon Green

This handy book tackles its subject by theme, taking words of standard English and tracing the development of their slang equivalents over the past 500 years. Covering variations from body and body functions, nationalities, food and drink, execution and death, its a great resource for an historical writer and worth tracking down a copy.
