- For Teachers
By: Betty Kirkpatrick
Would you Adam and Eve it! The Little Book of Cockney Rhyming Slang is back and bigger than ever in this new revised and expanded edition. Originally starting out as a secret language to fool coppers (bottle and stoppers), cockney rhyming slang has grown in popularity far beyond its London homeland. It is often regarded as an hilarious language owing to its tremendous vitality, so much so it has even reached as far a field as Australia and America. So don't be fore and aft - do yourself a Cheesey Quaver and take a butcher's at this Captain Cook. All those pages, hundreds of definitions, so take our lump of ice - empty out your Davy Crocketts and cough up your pie and mash - prepare to maze your chinas or even Queen's Park Rangers over a pig's ear down at the old rub-a-dub.
