New Yawk Tawk is a dictionary of the ethnically diverse and culturally dynamic expressions of the city and its surroundings. It offers more than 2,000 entries, tracing them back to their roots in a city defined by its population of immigrants from around the world. Renowned language expert and writer Robert Hendrickson draws on advertising, magazines, movies, newspapers, legends, the works of writers like Jimmy Breslin, Damon Runyon, and Mario Puzo, and even conversations overheard on the subway to provide a linguistic guide to the greatest city in the world.
