Michael Munro

The Complete Patter

A highly entertaining A-to-Z guide to the unique dialect of the city of Glasgow.
Do you have a baldy clue as to who the bears and junglies are? Puzzled by the thought of some cheekywatter from your cargo? Fancy a day out at Fort Weetabix? Or would you rather settle down with some swedgers? After all, you don't want to be a stank dodger. Confused? You need this book!
Michael Munro has won the eternal gratitude of Glaswegians for his efforts in popularizing their city’s dialect, universally known as the “patter.” This book is the most extensive collection of this rich and expressive language ever made. Often hilarious, sometimes coarse (but never dull!), the patter is the key to understanding this Scottish city and its inhabitants.
