Editorial Reviews

This so-called dictionary of multiculturally derived expressions of New York City slang is the fifth and final volume in a series of dictionaries of regional American dialects. The work is unsatisfying both as reference and as humor, as the 2,000 entries frequently include intentional misspellings of ordinary phrases intended to "transliterate" the New York accent, a joke which wears thin quicker than a New York minute, as well as other words and phrases which are simply not unique to the city. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
