THE VULGAR TONGUE consists of two parts; the first is the Cant Language, sometimes called Pedlar’s French, or St. Giles Greek; the second, those Burlesque Phrases, Quaint Allusions, and Nick-names for persons, things and places, which from long uninterrupted usage are made classical by prescription. — Captain Francis Grose, Classical Dictionary of the Vulgar Tongue, 1785
