1811 Dictionary of the Vulgar Tongue

For your amusement, here is one of my research tools for Shades of Milk and Honey. It’s very handy if you are doing anything set in the Regency. Also, I find it interesting how many vulgarities are just everyday speech now.

    I find it interesting how many of these vulgarities have vanished without a trace! “Abigail” = lady’s maid? “Crowd” = fiddle? Wicked.

    and i find it interesting J and I are interchangeable as a first letter depending on a vowel or consonant next

    So fabulous. I looked briefly at this when you first posted it but now I’m working on a Regency period piece and had to come back. Thanks for this and the other resources you shared.
