The Dictionary of the Vulgar Tongue

Francis Grose

Originally printed as a guide to street slang for men of quality, The Dictionary of the Vulgar Tongue is a gem! The avowed purpose of the dictionary was to give men of fashion an insight into the inappropriate language of the street. Read in modern times it is by turn uproariously funny and deeply confusing and yet certain truths have remained - the need for the mot juste has not diminished. Many of the words should be brought back into common parlance forthwith: we have no term for the admiral of the narrow seas - One who from drunkenness vomits into the lap of the person sitting opposite to him. We have perhaps less use for a word for dobin rig: Stealing ribbons from haberdashers early in the morning or late at night
