Edwardian Language-Translated

It’s a daisy-roots and brolly kind of day in my part of the world, so I’ve been spending my morning brushing up on some random Edwardianisms over at The Edwardian Promenade. Their deevy little list has all kinds of fun tidbits–did you know that a donkey walloper was a disparaging term for cavalry? Or that “college” was slang for “prison”? Kick back with a glass of fizz, head on over and brush up before the next Downton Abbey airs tomorrow night!
