Description
There's a reason it's hard to figure out what speakers of Cockney rhyming slang are talking about: you're not meant to. Often shortened from the original rhyme to a one-word substitution, terms like "bristols," "Barnaby," "tea-leaf," "bird," and "Brahms and Liszt" avoided saying real words that could get you in trouble, though a number of them are now so common, everyone knows what they mean without knowing they were once Cockney. Not much bigger than a pack of playing cards, this deck contains four dozen attractively decorated cards with individual entries. Use them as flash cards, or for impromptu trivia and quiz games, or simply read them as an unbound book.
