Cockney rhyming slang

Definition

Cockney rhyming slang rate
(Noun) (British slang, from a London district where the usage possibly originated and was certainly popularized): a word or phrase that rhymes with another which is actually meant.
Usage: "Toil and strife," in Cockney (and, now that I come to think of it, sexist) rhyming slang means "wife," and (sexist again, sorry) "Raquel Welsh has a nice set of Bristols" - for
"Bristol Cities," rhymes with ... .
