The culmination of years of research, this Dictionaryfeatures sources ranging from fanzines, through movie scripts, to classic twentieth-century literature.

Edited by Tom Dalzell, an author, lawyer and leading expert on American slang, and Terry Victor, a slang-collector actor, broadcaster, writer and director, The New Partridge Dictionary of Slang and Unconventional English is a monumental achievement, and anyone with a fascination or passion for language will delight in the wit and intelligence of this invaluable resource.
