Firefly: The Gorramn Shiniest Language Guide and Dictionary in the 'Verse
Feel free to read this in your bunk
- Based on the fan favorite TV show
- A comprehensive resource - with insults!
- May not help you understand River, though
Is it bad that what she said made perfect sense to me?Mandarin mixed with English. Fresh slang with a western edge. Whole new words, or at least new usages for them. These kinds of things won't be covered in your basic Oxford English Dictionary, but are sure to pop up in any episode of Joss Whedon's Firefly.
- Mal, "Safe"
Well, if you aren't fluent in Mandarin (don't worry - neither was the cast) or sure how to use the word "ironical" in a sentence, Firefly: The Gorramn Shiniest Language Guide and Dictionary in the 'Verse is here to help. This comprehensive resource is part phrasebook, part behind-the-scenes look at the role language plays in the series. Get the inside scoop from the show's language consultant and pick up some new insults along the way. We'd be tempted to say this book is the best Companion a Browncoat could have... but that means something a little different 'round here.
