LANGUAGE! 500 Years of the Vulgar Tongue
Traces the development of slang and its trajectory through society, and offers an impassioned argument for its defense. Exuberant and richly entertaining, it uncovers an oral history of marginality and rebellion, of dispossession and frustration--one that gives voice to our most guarded thoughts. Import.
