Elanor Clarke's 'considered, but somewhat tongue-in-cheek overview of old vernacular' is a collection of salacious slang and popular profanities through the ages. Arranged by theme, it begins with everyday words and phrases, from 'the altogether' (naked) to 'yap' (a 19th century word for prattling on), and ends with death and disease, including a colourful array of phrases for 'kicking the bucket' (the latter in use since the 16th century).
