about

Excerpt from A Dictionary of Slang, Jargon and Cant, Vol. 1: Embracing English, American, and Anglo-Indian Slang, Pidgin English, Tinker's Jargon, and Other Irregular Phraseology; A-K

Each profession or trade has its lingo, not to be mistaken for technical phraseology. Thus in cricket wickets is technical, but sticks is slang to put a break on a ball the former, to put stufl on it the latter. Bone shaker, the old type of bicycle, is slang; but kangaroo, the latest improvement on the spider bicycle, and which in shape somewhat resembles the primitive bone shaker, belongs to the technical phraseology of 'cycle machinists.
