Sino-Cockney Rhyming Slang

Cockney Rhyming slang originated in the mid-19th century in London’s East End. Rhyming slang was thought to have started among the lower classes as a secret language. We know that ‘brown bread’ means dead, ‘China plate’ means mate and ‘apples and pears’ means stairs.

Little is known about Chinese Cockney Rhyming slang which originated in Glen Waverley, Victoria in 2014. Following are some examples of this emerging language that will soon become the international language of business and trade.
