Illustrated throughout with eye-opening sketches, the book draws on English. Welsh, Romany and dialects used throughout the English-speaking world over the centuries. There are chapters for ladies and gents, coming together and flying solo, Shakepseare's naughty vocabulary and yankeee-doodle dirty; definitions, limericks, personal observations and historical data, making 'Gallop Your Maggot' a fun and factual treasure trove for cunning linguists everywhere.
