The Bloomsbury Dictionary of Rhyming Slangs provides a comprehensive and authoritative record of the variant rhyming slangs used in the Anglophone world. The dictionary specifically records social, regional and local variation within the UK alongside an up to date survey of rhyming slangs used in World Englishes at large. It builds upon previous work in the area and establishes a rigorous and authoritative account of the hugely imaginative way that rhyme is used within slangs and argot speech. It stresses accuracy and provability alongside its diversity. This is an academically rigorous work that is both accessible and scholarly. In the manner of the New Partridge Dictionary of Slang and Unconventional English this is a dictionary with authority and a personality.

The content of this book is based on the Andy Croft's experience of working with children in over 400 UK schools and will provide teachers with ideas, games, examples and models that they can use in the classroom to encourage their children to become writers and readers through the practice of rhyme and rhythm. He strongly believes that you don't have to be 'good at English' to be able to enjoy the music of ordinary speech. Using rhythm and rhyme is a democratic creative act that is equally hard and equally easy for everyone. It has special rules which won't let you reach for the first word that comes into your head. Your words have to fit the pattern. You don't have to write anything down, but you do have to become a writer. And once you have become a writer, you might become a reader...

The Bloomsbury Companion to Lexicography offers the definitive guide to a key area of linguistic study. Each companion is a comprehensive reference resource featuring an overview of key topics, research areas, new directions and a manageable guide to beginning or developing research in the field. Lexicography, as the practice of compiling dictionaries, has a long tradition that has been, for much of the time, largely independent of linguistics. The direct influence of linguistics on lexicography goes back around 50 years, though longer in the case of learners' dictionaries. The present volume aims to reflect on the research that has been and is being done in lexicography and to point the way forward. It tackles, among other topics, the critique of dictionaries in the electronic medium, the future of historical lexicography in the electronic mode with special reference to the online Oxford English Dictionary, and e-lexicography in general.
