This book presents the history of British English language and culture; how to speak it and its place in life and society. It includes: a useful and easy-to-use lexicon index; terms for food and drink, and sports and entertainment; and, sections on the Welsh and Scottish. It is packed with slang, jargon, common misunderstandings, humorous and quirky expressions; and is an interesting reading for people who want to know about British English and it's differences to American/Australian English.
This pocket-sized book plunges right into the meaning of scores of colorful but baffling expressions one encounters in British English...' --Chicago Tribune, August 5, 2007
