Description
The English language is in a state of perpetual change and Partridge's Concise Dictionary of Slang and unconventional English presents a snapshot of its state into the nineties. In this concise edition, Paul Beale continues the tradition begun in Eric Partridge's A Dictionary of Slang and Unconventional English, while making it particularly relevant to our understanding of the language of the present day. More than 1500 new terms have been added - coinages of the 1980s that had not yet come to light when the unabridged edition last went to press in 1983. Like its parent volume, the concise edition provides a account of the vivid, racy, and informative elements of our language, documenting the living history of English and social history of the twentieth century.
