Opis: Green's Dictionary of Slang (3 vols set) - Green, Jonathon

The three volumes of Green's Dictionary of Slang demonstrate the sheer scope of a lifetime of research by Jonathon Green, the leading slang lexicographer of our time. A remarkable collection of this often reviled but endlessly fascinating area of the English language, it covers slang from the past five centuries right up to the present day, from all the different English-speaking countries and regions. Every word and phrase is authenticated by genuine and fully-referenced citations of its use, giving the work a level of authority and scholarship unmatched by any other publication in this field. Green's Dictionary of Slang is a groundbreaking work. Quite simply, it is the most authoritative and comprehensive record of slang ever to be made available. 'No previous work of lexicography has ever stood as such a monument to mankind's baseness and wilful disinclination to self-improve' 'Multi-faceted and unflinching' 'Green's astonishing, peerless collage ... is the entire anglophone world unmediated' '[Green] belongs to a rare pantheon' Jonathan Meades, The Evening Standard 'the reference work of the vulgar tongue to which all others must now be referred [...] he has now exhibited English slang in more detail than any lexicographer before him' Jeremy Noel-Tod, The Telegraph '... It's not hyperbolic to suggest that it's the OED of slang' Michael Quinion, World Wide Words.com 'After more than a decade's labour, Jonathon Green, lexicographer of the subversive, has produced as fine a three-volume dictionary of slang as you would desire to piss upon (1700: phrase meaning "excellent, first-rate").' Steven Poole, The Guardian ' ... any language lover will find this as compelling a read as a thriller ... The dictionary is a stupendous achievement, in range, meticulous scholarship, and not least enterainment value' Christopher Hart, The Sunday Times 'this is the sort of book that, even when examined for a specific purpose, invites sustained perusal' Henry Hitchings, Financial Tim
