Do you have a baldy clue as to who the bears and junglies are? Confused by the thought of some cheekywatter from your cargo? Fancy a day out at Fort Weetabix? Or would you rather settle down with some swedgers? After all, you don't want to be a stank dodger. Puzzled? This book can help. Michael Munro has won the eternal gratitude of Glaswegians for his efforts in popularizing their city's dialect, universally known as "the patter." This book is the most extensive collection of this rich and expressive language ever made. Knowledge of the often hilarious, sometimes coarse--but never dull!--patter is the key to understanding Glasgow and its inhabitants.
