Title: L'Argot au XXe siècle
Subtitle: Édition inversée et raisonnée du dictionnaire français-argot
Written By: Aristide Bruant
Léon de Bercy
Edited By: Denis Delaplace
Series Title: Classiques de l'argot et du jargon, 3

L'Argot au XXe siècle est un dictionnaire français-argot signé par Aristide Bruant et réalisé avant tout par Léon de Bercy. Seule une édition inversée (argot-français) et raisonnée pouvait restituer avec précision ce panorama lexical; en replaçant l'ouvrage dans la lignée de ses prédécesseurs et en mettant mieux en valeur son apport, la présente édition facilitera en outre aux lecteurs l'accès à de nombreux passages littéraires qui, du XVe siècle à nos jours, se sont alimentés aux ressources d'expressivité offertes par l'argot. This reverse (slang-French) and critical dictionary is vital to understand a great many literary texts from the 15th century to the present day which are nourished by the expressive resources provided by slang.
