A good buy for out of town Cockneys
on 16 January 2014
Although the lack of an index for the words you want to 'translate' into rhyming slang (as opposed to the other way round) was a bit of a disappointment, this book lives up to all other expectations, and made an ideal Christmas gift for a Yorkshireman who's fascinated by London. Infact it kept him quiet the whole festive period! The inclusion of some Australian rhyming slang references would be useful to some students of the genre, but isn't too scholarly for the casual browser.
