The 100 Words that Make the English - Tony Thorne

I tend to fold over the corner of pages with nice bits on when I read books. This book has 6 folds, all within the first half - making the latter half a bit drier. Overall I quite enjoyed it, but none of the words Thorne chooses go into a huge amount of depth and it wasn’t as English-y as I’d hoped.

Favourite quotation - “‘my dear old crumpet’ surfaced as an innocent [Ed: chyeah right] term of (male to male) endearment in the vocabulary of Bertie Wooster”
Words From The Streets – Interview with Tony Thorne

Slang is created with the use of informal words and expressions, which are not expected to be part of a standard dialect or language. It’s used in different contexts, including SMS messaging, social networking sites, and spoken communication.

Has slang changed in London since the early part of the 20th century?

Tony Thorne, a linguist, and slang specialist at King’s College London, and author of ‘The Latest Youth Slang’ says, “some slang words (called ‘vogue terms’) depend on their newness for effect, so go out of date very quickly, but some slang (the word ‘punk’ lasted from the 17th to 20th century) stays in the language for a long time. I don’t think the concept of slang will be forgotten, even if the words themselves change”….CLICK TITLE FOR FULL ARTICLE

MA NOTE : 07/10

VU LE : Lundi 1 Février 2016


Pendant quelques années, une série télévisée humoristique raconte les mésaventures de prisonniers de guerre dans un camp allemand. HOGAN’S HEROES, re-titré en France sous le nom de PAPA SCHULTZ, a laissé derrière lui un camp à l'abandon. Une opportunité que ne laisse pas passer les producteurs de ILSA LA LOUVE DES SS. Il leur aurait été impossible de construire de tels décors pour leur film et on peut même se demander si ce n'est pas en tombant sur cette occasion que le projet du film s'est lancé.

Steve Rogers looked at his changed body, then at the rest of the Avengers. “It appears our genders have been changed. We’re going to need new names. I will be Stephanie, Tony will be Toni, Thor will be Thorn Odinsdottir, Bruce will be Brooke, Natasha will be Nathan, and Clint will be Claire. Stark’s new code name will be Iron Maiden. Romanoff, Barton, Banner and I will be keeping our code names.”
