Description

Pardon My English! looks into some of the shadier recesses of the English language, considering the slang terms used by different professions and sectors of society, the slang used in different countries and different parts of Britain, and the development of slang over the centuries. In doing so, it covers a huge variety of words, ranging from quaint archaisms to industrial-strength expletives.show more
