As much as a Rat's Tail: Korean slang, invective & euphemism- the "Insider's guide"
An irreverent look at Language within Culture

Get 'street' with A Rat's Tail - Learn what the kids are really saying, all the Korean they will never teach you in class.
Korean is rich with the dynamic linguistic expressions and freshly coined language. A Rat's Tail dives into the intricacies of modern Korean slang introducing the hip, hot, spicy and sexual, the irreverent and inspiring, the cultural, crass and comical.
This is the Korean not covered in the language books, full of color and infused with philosophy. With A Rat's Tail in hand, you can impress others with your verbal acumen as you complement their fashion sense, dish out dirty words, or text up a storm, while you gain insight into the mind and culture of the Korean people.

Get the lingo on:

  • expressions so necessary they're like rice
  • a little something on the side
  • stuff to say (and do) while drinking
  • spicy language and swearing
  • something sexy to say
  • what they say in the halls, not the classroom!
  • Konglish & more

Get the Straight Scoop with explanations of uncommon words and unusual usage.
Culturally Speaking - get the skinny on how Koreans think, speak or act.
Plus how to pick up, break up, make up, or get down and dirty.
Find out who's abusing you and how to talk about someone behind their back.
