This great new book from Collins is chock-full of all the newest in rhyming slang. If you don't know your Tony Blair from your George Bush, you might want to take a butcher's at it. Cockney rhyming slang is no longer restricted to the East End of London, with many phrases familiar to all regions and classes of the English-speaking world. It's now a constantly evolving area of language with just a pinch of the rude and the lewd. Collins takes a light-hearted look at the colourful stories behind many of the words and phrases in common use today. Hundreds of the best-loved terms are given, as well as the very latest. Cartoons and quirky facts also make for a lively read. This fun and fascinating book is a must for anyone who loves playing with language and inventing new words. If you don't have a scoob what we're rabbiting about, don't get your grundies in a twist - let Collins be your guide to the word on the field of wheat.
