Dictionaries of British Slang
Putting aside Partridge's Dictionary of Slang and Unconventional English, rhyming slang dominates the production of British slang glossaries during this period. The dictionaries are often nostalgic accounts of simpler times, and use humour to express anxieties about issues such as immigration and women's liberation. Links between rhyming slang and the entertainment industries are clear in several of the glossaries produced.
