Today I will open my 1811 Dictionary of the Vulgar Tongue to a random page (or pages), selecting a few definitions for your enjoyment. I just love when I come across a word or phrase we still use today. LOL
Gentry Mort. A gentlewoman.
Puff Guts. A fat man.
Scandal Broth. Tea.
So now that you've learned a few slang expressions from the early 1800s, use them with care.
Happy reading, writing, and blogging!!
