#AusSlang: Rhyming Slang (2)

Hello hello, fellas. How’s your Sunday? Good or bad? :)

Two weeks ago I’ve shared #AusSlang. Do you remember what was the theme of #AusSlang two weeks ago? ;D

Yes, that’s right. The theme of #AusSlang was ‘rhyming slang’. But wait, what’s rhyming slang? I’ll tell you on the next tweet. :D

What’s rhyming slang? Rhyming slang is a type of slang in which a word is replaced by words or phrases they rhyme with.

Now, I’ll give you some examples of rhyming slang. Here they are…

  1. Johnny Horner: corner. Example: Betty is reading her new book on the Johnny Horner.
  2. Dodge and shirk: work. Example: A: Hey, where is Amanda? | D: Amanda is off to dodge and shirk.
  3. Frog and toad: road. Example: Wilhemina, you can meet Daniel tomorrow morning because he has to hit the frog and toad now.
  4. Mud pies: eyes. Example: Alexis is beautiful because she has big mud pies.
  5. Smash and grab: cab. Example: Would you mind calling the smash and grab, Justin?

Those are five examples of rhyming slang. Do you want for another slang? You can click this http://englishtips4u.com . :)

Thank you for your attention, fellas. Wish you have a good Monday for tomorrow. Cheerio! :D
