‘Book review: ‘Odd Job Man’ by slang lexicographer Jonathon Green’ by Stan Carey

Stan Carey’s latest blog post is titled “Book review: ‘Odd Job Man’ by slang lexicographer Jonathon Green”.

Stan says, “Chambers Slang Dictionary by Jonathon Green is my usual first stop for slang queries and browsing, because it’s the biggest such book on my shelf – size matters in lexicography – and also the best. A quote on the spine says, “Dr. Johnson would have moaned with delight”, and while I could live without the thought of Samuel Johnson making pleasure-noises on my shelf, the sentiment holds.”
