1 - 2 weeks availability
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!
Elanor Clarke grew up by the Thames, surrounded by Southern slang and the Estuary accent. She now lives in Kent with her partner and their cat, Willow, and when she isn't writing she is often curled up with a good book or on the hunt for literary treasures, old and new.
