RHYMING SLANG
El rhyming slang (jerga rimada) es un tipo muy peculiar de jerga que usan los habitantes de un barrio en el este de Londres, los (cockneys), en la que una palabra o frase determinada se sustituye por otra que rima con ella; por ejemplo, dicen apples and pears en vez de stairs. Puede resultar muy confuso para las personas que no lo conocen bien, sobre todo porque, además, muchas veces se establece un doble juego de palabras en el que la palabra que rima no se dice; por ejemplo, butcher's hook quiere decir look, pero a menudo sólo se dice butcher's, como en la frase let's have a butcher's. El uso de algunas de estas expresiones se ha extendido al inglés coloquial habitual, como use your loaf, donde loaf, que viene de loaf of bread, quiere decir head.
