Re: Slang. I want it.
I don't know how current this is in England, since my advisor uses these and he's definitely in his early 60s, but I've noticed two that stand out from his use of them in lecture.
Chappies. Mostly in the context similar to "So after he killed the king, Cyneheard killed all the king's chappies."
Wacko. Intensifier, almost always with a word of bigness. "And you have to wonder why it was that this king, if that's who he was, left this wacko huge load of goodies lying about."
Also, goodies to stand in for treasure, but that's smaller scale use for him than the other two.
