We’ve been working on it for months and hinting at it on our social media feeds and today is the day we’re ready to release Anglotopia’s Dictionary of British English: Brit Slang from A to Zed!

We’re really excited about this new book as we’ve had a lot of interest in it. Our new British Slang Dictionary features over 1,000 words of British English and has several sub-dictionaries on:

  • Cockney Slang Guide
  • Scots English Guide
  • Scouse English Guide
  • Yorkshire English Guide
  • West Country English Guide
  • London Slang
  • Australian English
  • Amusing British Place Names
  • And More!!!

It’s a lot of fun to read through and even the most ardent Anglophiles will learn something new!

Here’s the back cover blurb:

It is often said that Britain and the United States are a common culture divided by language. This book is a guide to all the fun linguistic differences between American and British English. The British not only have their own unique words but they also use certain words much differently and this book seeks to gather all those words and phrases in one place for easy reference. This book is perfect to keep on hand while you’re watching the latest episode of Downton Abbey or Doctor Who and you hear a word that you don’t understand. It is our hope that this book will enrich your experience of British Culture and lead to further understanding between our two countries.

This is the first new slang dictionary to come on the market in over 5 years and it’s also the most comprehensive.

The print edition costs just $12.99 and you have several options to buy it

We’ve also made the book available in eBook for most e-readers. The eBook edition costs just $8.99 USD.
