 Synopsis

 

This handy little pocket-size book contains the differences between British English and American English. If you don't know your "billycock" from your "tribly," "take a shufti" through the U.K. to U.S.A. Dictionary.
 

The book is great for those interested in language and culture differences. If you travel to the U.K., or any British-influenced destination, you might want (or need) to know that "the loo" means the bathroom, the "bonnet" is the hood of a car, and much, much more.

In A to Z (or Zed) format, the dicitonary lists terms and expressions that vary between British and American English. It also has conversion charts, plus basic information on rhyming slang, pronunciation and spelling.

 

 Author

Claudine Dervaes is a well known travel author who collaborated with John Hunter on this handy little book for travelers, anglophiles, and companies that have dealings in the U.K. and U.S.A.
