Dirty English: Slang from the Streets of New York, L.A., London, Dublin, Sydney... (Dirty Everyday Slang)
Synopses & Reviews
Learn enough crude swear words, funny insults, and slang sex terms to offend everyone from prudish British ladies to Irish drinking buddies
If youre visiting an English-speaking country you have it made—no need to learn a foreign language, right? But once you arrive on the streets, its clear the language being spoken is far different from the one back home. Luckily, Dirty English translates the most obscure native banter while teaching you how to sling slang like the coolest of locals.
When a Brit recommends pulling rubbers” over a pair of shoes, hes not telling you to keep your feet dry with condoms. When Australians mention loving Oz,” theyre not interested in flying somewhere over the rainbow. Revealing the true meanings of these and other everyday slang terms, Dirty English is an entertaining read with its humorous definitions and amusing examples.
Youll soon have no problem chatting up natives of England, Scotland, Ireland, New Zealand, and Australia, and youll be able to understand the locals in distinctive regional areas like wicked” New England, the purdy” South, and the hella chill” West Coast.
