No, not like that, you filthbeasts. 'Tis a glossary of slang
I spent the whole of yesterday morning trying to find out if having various characters in my 18th century drama thing* saying the word 'shit' was historically accurate or not. Research would seem to indicate that while it's okay to use it as a noun, using it as an exclamation is probably pushing it. Although I might change it to 'shite' and see if I can get away with it.
Anyway, one of my main references, a dictionary of "buckish slang, university wit, and pickpocket eloquence" is available for download here
I did stumble across a few fun phrases I thought I might put up here, thusly:
BALUM RANCUM. A hop or dance, where the women are all prostitutes. N. B. The company dance in their birthday suits.
BEAU TRAP. A loose stone in a pavement, under which water lodges, and on being trod upon, squirts it up, to the great damage of white stockings; also a sharper neatly dressed, lying in wait for raw country squires, or ignorant fops.
DEADLY NEVERGREEN, that bears fruit all the year round - The gallows, or three-legged mare. See THREE-LEGGED MARE.
FART CATCHER. A valet or footman from his walking behind his master or mistress.
FUSTY LUGGS. A beastly, sluttish woman**.
GILLY GAUPUS. A Scotch term for a tall awkward fellow.
LOCKSMITH'S DAUGHTER. A key.
PAD BORROWERS. Horse stealers.
PISS PROPHET. A physician who judges of the diseases of his patients solely by the inspection of their urine.
WIBBLE. Bad drink.
Anyway, there are loads, go and have a look.
* I know 1811 is the nineteenth century, but it's close enough. This should in no way be seen as symbolic of my attitude to historical accuracy for the project. Although I might put robots in it, to spice it up a bit.
** Boz knows lots of these, apparently. EDIT: oops, I was thinking of Rob, sorry to besmirch your reputation Boz.
