* UnusualEuphemism: Apart from the "--ing" VerbalTic of Mr. Tulip, Sacharissa also uses one when she's very annoyed with William but too much of a ProperLady to swear. "Some complete ''muffin'' offered a reward!"

* {{Flanderization}}: Discussed in-universe. Mr. Goodmountain notes that the malicious stereotypes about dwarves obsessing over gold tends to ignore the nuances, such as the dwarven marital tradition of "buying" a betrothed from their parent.

Added DiffLines:

* OOCIsSeriousBusiness: Vimes points out that Vetinari being shocked and sorry for killing someone (much less when the person ''isn't even dead'') is really incongruous, and William puts it together: Vetinari trained in the Assassin's Guild. The reaction is one of the "stupid facts" that lead William to pursue the real story.

* IronicEcho: Once William's got his hands on a recording of "A lie can run around the world before the truth has got its boots on," he replays it, slightly shorter each time until all it says is "the truth has got its boots on."

** When Goodmountain asks about the engraving proof William's carrying, William assumes that he, being a newcomer to the city, won't have heard of engraving and attempts to explain it, floundering his way to the description that it's "a sort of very nearly magical way of getting lots of copies of writing". Later, when William realizes that Goodmountain's printing press is a new innovation and asks what it is, Goodmountain quotes the description back at him.
