The book is in with the editor and we're still on course for a Spring release.
I've ranged words in Shine On Me from Queen's English, colloquial, cockney, yiddische, and polari.
A few faves I've put in are:
Malison - curse
Bummaree - market porter at Smithfield
Pishers - youths (yiddische)
Kaffies - trousers (polari)
Electrickery - electricity (Catweazle)
Sigil - pictoral signature of a demon
Kelnershe - waitress (yiddische)
Sherbert - taxi (cockney - sherbert dab = taxi cab)
Charper - search (polari)
Nebbische - twat (yiddische)
