Summary "The authors, originally from the English Midlands and now settled in New Zealand, have allowed half-remembered phrases to find their way onto the printed page for the enjoyment of all. Accompanied by 'translations' in modern speech, they've presented the reader with a dip-in kaleidoscope of the way we speak for generations still to come. Charming, homely and heart-warming, it's the sort of book to curl up with and recall how we are, how we used to be, and the sheer silliness of why we opened our mouths in the first place. This book is never going to end. So have a smile, or a tear, at the Britain that used to be or we thought we knew, as one remembers the past."-- Provided by Freading.
