COCKNEY RHYMING SLANG
I would imagine most people have come across rhyming slang at some time or other, even if only in the movies - and may not even have realised it. It is sort of texting in reverse - whereas texting abbreviates the actual words, rhyming slang is a longer version.
A lot of the phrases themselves have become shortened over the years e.g. Joanna (Piano), Tit for Tat (Hat) is shortened to "Titfer" and "I'm Boracic" means "I have no money".
The following lists some of the good old originals, whereas others have been added more recently.
ANY ADDITIONS WOULD BE GRATEFULLY RECEIVED
