3.0 out of 5 stars Quite good, but not one to show the kids.
This book is packed with Scouse phrases and wit, but also contains a good deal of general slang in use nationally. These mainly concentrate on drugs and sex slang (particularly homosexual slang)and may not be suitable for under 16's. So, if you are looking for purely Scouse wit and words, you may be a little disappointed. This is the 4th of a series, so it may be worth...

This review is from: How to Talk Proper in Liverpool (Lern Yerself Scouse) (Paperback)
This book is packed with Scouse phrases and wit, but also contains a good deal of general slang in use nationally. These mainly concentrate on drugs and sex slang (particularly homosexual slang)and may not be suitable for under 16's. So, if you are looking for purely Scouse wit and words, you may be a little disappointed. This is the 4th of a series, so it may be worth checking the earlier volumes first, to see if they concentrate more on the Scouse aspects... not bad value.

This review is from: How to Talk Proper in Liverpool (Lern Yerself Scouse) (Paperback)
Born and bred on Merseyside I have to say that this little book is an amusing and interesting read but bears little relationship to the speech of Liverpool people today or indeed the last 50 years.

Enjoyable enough for all that.

Got it for a colleague as a secret santa. She appreciated the book as it reminded her of her childhood

This was a gift for a Canadian friend and went down well. It is great that it's stayed in print.

This review is from: How to Talk Proper in Liverpool (Lern Yerself Scouse) (Paperback)
It seems frank shaw has lost his roots on this one

he needs to get out more or maybe he's getting to old

nevermind,the only book worth buying if your flush with doe is his first book

but what is scouse slang anyway? I thought it was a dying breed in

Liverpool now!
