Talk:see you later alligator

Definition from Wiktionary, the free dictionary
Jump to: navigation, search

Please note that the book "The Story of the English Language", Revised Edition, by Mario Pei attributes the phrase 'see you later' and 'alligator' to Cockney rhyming slang in use in California in the 1850's. (Please see the bottom of page 191 for this text.) Does 'in a while' and 'crocodile' have the same background?

  • This is what I read in the translation box: "Extended form of see you laterCategory:term cleanup.". My preferences or a template:term error? User:Sobreira
{{term}} shouldn't be used inside {{trans-top}}, that's the error. Nor should {{gloss}}, {{l}} and so on; the links go in the definition not the translation gloss. Mglovesfun (talk) 10:11, 15 July 2013 (UTC)
