~Regency Wednesday~ Stubble It

As I flip contentedly through my Vulgar Dictionary, I see a term that I've seen in more than one Regency, one that I've used myself. Lord Greville from Deception used this term. 

Hold your tongue. CANT. 

And just because I can, here's an additional definition.

A harlot. 

Taken verbatim from the 1811 Dictionary of the Vulgar Tongue, which is free all the time in Amazon's Kindle Store. Guess what else is free today and ONLY TODAY?

Thank you for joining me for another random bit of buckish slang. OK, so it wasn't all that random since I did choose a word this time that appears in one of my own Regencies. Still. ☺

♥Happy reading, writing, and blogging!!♥
