Oxford Dictionary Of Modern Slang

 

 

Drawing on the unique resources of the Oxford English Dictionary and offering coverage of over 6,000 slang words and expressions from the Cockney 'abaht' to the American term 'zowie', this is the most lively and authoritative dictionary of slang from the 20th and 21st centuries.

 

There’s no end to the ‘mind-blowing’ power of Modern Slang. As a mouse is electronically wired to a laptop so too will this dictionary become an intravenous drip to a writer. Hey ho, writers and authors ... read on!

 

At first flicking through and then avidly fixated with each page. If dinner, partners, kids and life in general didn’t get in the way, an aspiring writer, and indeed any well-tuned author, could get lost in this book only to reappear when they’ve chewed through every word.

Not only can you find modern ways with dialogue, but you can create sparkling ‘labels’ for your characters. Have a good nose through the thematic section, it’s like bottled inspiration!

 

We love this book - read our full review on Modern Slang.
