The successor to The Dictionary of Slang and Unconventional English ? Eric Partridge?s magnum opus ? this all-new work retains the humour and energy of its forebear, and continues the Partridge tradition for a new millennium.

The culmination of years of research, this Dictionary features sources ranging from fanzines, through movie scripts, to classic twentieth-century literature.

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

  • new two-volume format, containing over 60,000 entries in 2,000 pages
  • 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 
  • new emphasis on post-World War II slang and unconventional English
  • published sources for each entry, often including an early or significant example of the term?s use in print.

Edited by Tom Dalzell, an author, lawyer and leading expert on American slang, and Terry Victor, a slang-collector actor, broadcaster, writer and director, The New Partridge Dictionary of Slang and Unconventional English  is a monumental achievement, and anyone with a fascination or passion for language will delight in the wit and intelligence of this invaluable resource.


'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
