Rhyming slang is a form of slang constructed on the English language and involves replacing a common word with two or more other words, the last of which rhymes with the original word.
For example, the "dog and bone" is the phone, the "trouble and strife" is your wife, and the "china plate" is your mate.
However, on many occasions, one or more last words are dropped, and the slang term now bears no resemblance to the original word.
For example, the "dog" is the phone, the "trouble" is your wife, and a "china" is your mate.
So, here is a rhyming slang quiz for you.
To get you started, here are a few to warm you up. They should be straight forward.
