A lively, authoritative, and up-to-date look at the world of rhyming slang, from its origins in London's 19th-century underworld to the buzzwords of 21st-century popney. Arranged by topic, including Crime, Food and Drink, Illness, Money, Sex, and Sport, this highly readable collection is at once an informative source to the story behind some of our most lively expressions and a browser's delight.

Review from previous edition An exemplary piece of editing . . . Ayto's book is the best and most entertaining so far The Spectator

John Ayto is an experienced lexicographer, and author of many books on the English language, including the acclaimed Twentieth Century Words (Oxford, 1999), which was reviewed as 'An absolutely terrific book . . . thoroughly addictive and full of surprises'. His previous books for OUP include the Oxford Dictionary of Slang and The Oxford Dictionary of Modern Slang.
