This hilarious book is the essential guide to understanding the intricacies and nuances of one of Britain's most colourful dialects. It has been immensely popular over the years and has provided the inspiration for a number of acts explaining the idiosyncrasies of local and national dialects from Dundonian to Australian.Centred around a number of dialogues which deal with everyday situations - at the discotheque, dining out, Hogmanay, Hallowe'en and shopping, to name but a few - it introduces a whole range of vocabulary and expressions likely to bewilder the uninitiated, but which are the key to understanding the Glaswegian in his natural habitat. From general comments about the weather ('Scummindooninbuckets') to useful phrases designed to ward off those who might be getting just a bit too familiar ('Takyurhonaffmabum'), this hilarious book will increase your vocabulary and give you the confidence to master this complex but enormously expressive language. "The Parliamo Glasgow Omnibus" audio CD is also available.
