Cassell Dictionary Of Slang
Cassell Dictionary Of Slang
by Jonathon Green
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, but not conclusive, 4 Dec 2003
This is a very extensive dictionary of slang from the English speaking countries of the world. Unfortunately it lumps all West Indian countries into one, neglecting the variations in culture and language between them which are as varied as English local cultures and language (compare Dorset with Birmingham!). That said, it is a very good slang dictionary, though not exhaustive, if you're a serious researcher you will also require other specialised slang dictionaries. I say buy it!
