I Just Had to Have This
on 12 October 2010
Alright, I know this isn't standard fare, and to be honest most people won't be interested in this in the slightest. I read a lot of older books and so this is of some value to me, as this contains slang terms, and is also humorous. Francis Grose wrote this to amuse as well as to inform so some of the definitions are quite funny, however it does serve a serious purpose as the words and sayings mentioned here would not have been included in a normal dictionary.
This may be of help for those who need to study such material, and if you are writing a novel for that period, even if not you may still find this of help in coming out with something humorous. Best of all, its free.
