Nadsat[edit]

'Rabbit' is Nadsat for 'work', should it be mentioned here? 79.178.166.40 17:53, 3 April 2008 (UTC)

I would say No — not until Nadsat enters standard English. It is, after all, basically Russian. Paul Magnussen 18:02, 22 September 2011 (UTC)

Cockney Rhyming Slang[edit]

'Rabbit and pork' is the etymology given in the COD, but it seems very wrong to me as a Londoner: rhyming-slang couples are well known pairs, and who associates rabbit with pork? My understanding has always been that it comes from rabbit's paw = jaw. Disagreement welcome, I might learn something.Paul Magnussen 17:59, 22 September 2011 (UTC)

Dutch translation "rob"[edit]

Can someone please verify if "rob" is a correct translation for rabbit? I sought for it on Dutch internet dictionaries and could only find it in an (etymological dictionary, which states that the use of it is dated. I speak Dutch, and I only use "rob" as a synonym for "zeehond" which means "seal", so when I read the translation I was confused
