Rabbit and Pork Cockney Rhyming Slang

Rhyming slang is using words in the English language to replace other words, but the reason for being swapped is because they tend to rhyme. Rhyming slang originated in the East End of London, UK and spoken by Cockneys. A prime example is replacing "stairs" with the rhyming term "apples and pears"; sometimes a person omits the last word, i.e. "apples". So the spoken phrase "I am going up the apples" would indicate "I am going up the stairs". "Telephone" is indicated by "dog" ('dog-and-bone'); "eyes" by "minces" ('mince pies'); "wife" by "trouble" ('trouble-and-strife'); "wig" by "syrup" ('syrup of fig"), and "feet" by "plates" ('plates of meat'). A typical sentence in Cockney would be: "It nearly knocked me off my plates of meat: he was wearing a syrup! So I got straight on my dog'n'bone to my trouble, 'cos I couldn't believe my mince pies." So read this book and soon you can puzzle friends and family that you are fluent in another language, Cockney Rhyming Slang! You'll be able to say things that will make them scratch their heads as they don't understand a word you're talking about! Like, at dinner you can ask "will you pass the Army and Navy?" (Gravy) And of course, many of these words in this book are fun to read.

English for Americans (for Americans to understand the British)

English is the second most used language in the world with 508 million people talking it, but this is half as much as Mandarin users who come first place with over one billion users. Third place is Hindustani users, 497 million people. Fourth place goes to the Spanish language with 392 million users and finally Russian with 277 million. However the English language today can have hundreds of words split into American-English and English. They differ in the spellings of words; some words used in England are almost unheard of in America, and vice-versa. This book lists British words that are unheard of in America, and vice-versa; and includes common slang words that people speak everyday in the UK, that differs to written English! So, if you're from America, Canada or Australia, and your first language is English, or English is your second language from another country, then be ahead of everyone else by understanding the Queen's English - and how the English have twisted and adapted English for when it's spoken - words that you won't find in any English teaching manuals! Examples: Crisps - Salt & vinegar, beef, cheese & onion, ready salted, smoky bacon. Crisps are called chips in America. Underground - The underground is another word for subway or as we like to call it, the tube. Ladybird - Not even closely related to a bird! Does fly though. A small round flying bug, that is black with red wings that have a few black dots on.
