About the book

Banter like a bowsered giflurt and swear like a sparrow-mouthed snick fadger with the help of this illustrated dictionary of long-lost words and phrases.

This crude and quirky volume contains the most amusing vocabulary from the murky Middle English of Chaucer right up to the more eloquent but equally obscure parlances of the early 1900s – essential for all lovers of weird and wonderful wordage!

About the author
