Subject: Re: query on Cockney
"Do you know of any good book (or ariticle or dictionary) giving
a 1-2 page definition/history of the Cockney dialect?"
Can anybody give me any info on this? Thanks in advance.
The Merriam-Webster New Book of Word Histories (ISBN 0-87779-603-3)
has a listing for "cockney" and gives just over a page of interesting
information, although of course it focuses on the word itself more
than on the dialect.
