A funny and charming guide to the slang and old-fashioned terms used on Corrie. Many are commonly known, but the little stories written about who said what and such is so charming.
Peter E. McGinn
A good book to have if the dialogue causes you to be gobsmacked at times

A while after we began to watch the British soap opera Coronation Street in earnest, through the Canadian CBC network, I ordered this book. Partly because I was buying all kinds of books about the series, but also because I thought it might be helpful with some of the words and phrases used on the show. Even after we got used to the accents, which aren't just British but more northern England - Manchester and Yorkshire country. It did help with some words and phrases that we couldn't figure out from the context of the sentences, and the examples from the show are entertaining. Apparently some of this language sage is slowly disappearing, so this book might be considered a sociological record.
