Welcome, my chuckaboos! I’m doing an extra post this week, because I’m *almighty* honored and excited about Olga Núñez Miret’s review of“Speak Chuckaboo, Slang of the Victorian and Steam Eras.” Comments are closed here, but I hope you’ll click over to Olga’s post and say hello. https://www.authortranslatorolga.com/?p=14418

Back in the days of steam engines and mannerly people, a chuckaboo was one’s dear friend. This volume contains slang from the Victorian Era, as well as the Steam Era, which began before the reign of Queen Victoria, and continued into the early 1900s. It combines language from the Victorian, Edwardian, and Steam Eras because there was a great deal of overlap.
This slang dictionary also contains a sprinkling of vocabulary words of those eras, which have fallen out of use, along with some history and trivia. Have fun speaking chuckaboo. You’re positively rum ti tum with the chill off! Simply hunky dory.
