Description

Rhyming 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 confuse the 'peelers' and the casual eavesdropper. The truth is that although its origins are confused, it is still very much alive and used today, with new phrases being coined and dropped into the language all the time. In Cockney Rabbit, Ray Puxley, born with Bow Bells ringing in his ears, has collected together all the old, familiar expressions, along with many new terms - some recorded for the first time - to create a sparkling, authoritative and highly entertaining dick'n'arrry of this ever-popular form of speech. With this book beside you, you need never be confused by Arthur Daley again!
