As promised, here is another installment of our light hearted look at English Slang. When a word is indicated by a '*' it means that it is not in common usage nowadays in England, but once was. Oftentimes, slang comes around in phases so one word might not be used now but in future it may be. This often depends on popular media such as movies and newspapers who have been responsible for the use of mane slang phrases over the years.
