Resource: Victorian Slang

Leadenhall Street Victorian LondonIf you’re writing something set in Victorian times (and it’s a popular era – Sherlock Holmes, Jago & Litefoot spring to mind) you might want help with the vernacular (ie the language!). If this is you, have a look at Passing English of the Victorian Ara A Dictionary of Heterodox English, Slang and Phrase by J Redding Ware.

It’s available on Arhive.Org and downloadable as a PDF, ePub and other formats. The link is: Passing English. You might use it in conjunction with these other Victorian resources.
