  • Much ado about Nothing

    Hi all,
    I'm guessing this has probably been debated before.
    Ive just read that the term " Nothing" was popular slang in the Elizabethan era for femail genitalia.
    I was wondering if Elizabethan slang would still be around in the 1880's.

    Regards.

    Still around now ...... as long as there are 13 year old boys doing Shakespeare .......

      But would someone like "Eddowes" know it and use it?
      you can guess what I'm thinking here

        Seriously doubt Eddowes was a prostitute.

        She was simply refusing to give her name.

          Then you might have more than one source for that, can you share any?
