Booklist Top of the List Reference Source

The heir and successor to Eric Partridge's brilliant magnum opus, The Dictionary of Slang and Unconventional English, this two-volume New Partridge Dictionary of Slang and Unconventional English is the definitive record of post WWII slang.

Containing over 60,000 entries, this new edition of the authoritative work on slang details the slang and unconventional English of the English-speaking world since 1945, and through the first decade of the new millennium, with the same thorough, intense, and lively scholarship that characterized Partridge's own work.

Unique, exciting and, at times, hilariously shocking, key features include:

  • unprecedented coverage of World English, with equal prominence given to American and British English slang, and entries included from Australia, New Zealand, Canada, India, South Africa, Ireland, and the Caribbean
  • emphasis on post-World War II slang and unconventional English
  • published sources given for each entry, often including an early or significant example of the term’s use in print.
  • hundreds of thousands of citations from popular literature, newspapers, magazines, movies, and songs illustrating usage of the headwords
  • dating information for each headword
  • in the tradition of Partridge, commentary on the term’s origins and meaning

New to this edition:

  • A new preface noting slang trends of the last five years
  • Over 1,000 new entries from the US, UK and Australia
  • New terms from the language of social networking
  • Many entries now revised to include new dating, new citations from written sources and new glosses

The New Partridge Dictionary of Slang and Unconventional English is a spectacular resource infused with humour and learning – it’s rude, it’s delightful, and it’s a prize for anyone with a love of language.

In addition to this hard back two volume set, The New Partridge Dictionary of Slang and Unconventional English will also be the first slang dictionary available on-line, giving readers unprecedented access to the rich world of slang.

Book Description:

Praise for the first edition:

'A veritable Madame Tussaud’s of the vulgar language. It is a really epoch-making, monumental piece of work, carried out with astonishing industry and learning.' – New Statesman

'Most slang dictionaries are no better than momgrams or a rub of the brush, put together by shmegegges looking to make some moola. [The New Partridge Dictionary of Slang and Unconventional English] is the wee babes. At more than 2,000 pages it's mondo and pretty authoritative, including entries not only from the United Kingdom and America but also from Australia, New Zealand, India and the Caribbean. Who's the daddy?!'  Guardian

'One of the many benefits of owning the two-volume New Partridge Dictionary of Slang and Unconventional English, is that you can dip in just about anywhere and enjoy the exuberant, endless display of human inventiveness with language.' – BOOKFORUM

'The grandfather of twentieth-century slang books' The New Yorker, May 14, 2012

Praise for the second edition:

'The Partridge canon is certainly a well-used reference work here at the British Library: invaluable in documenting developments in English slang while supporting the day-to-day curatorial activity of describing, transcribing and interpreting the Library's sound recordings of vernacular speech. Linguistic researchers and devotees of the English Language will, I suspect, appreciate greatly the developments in context and presentation in this latest edition of the dictionary... I am sure the Partridge brand will continue to evolve and be rightly revered for years to come.' - English Today

About the Author:

Tom Dalzell -Senior Editor

Terry Victor – Editor
