I can't help but also mention I Love It When You Talk Retro : hoochie coochie, double whammy, drop a dime, and the forgotten origins of American speech or Mortal Syntax : 101 language choices that will get you clobbered by the grammar snobs-- even if you're right or... well I did say almost wordlessly.
