British English A to Zed

British English A to ZedAs we know, there are confounding differences between American and British English. A new book highlights these differences in a fun, comprehensive manner.

British English A to Zed provides an alphabetical listing of more than 5,500 "Briticisms" and their corresponding "Americanisms". There are sections on food names, botanical and zoological names and the whole Britain, Briton, British English elements as well. Cricket terms, connotative place-names, and connotative names of periodicals, e.g., The Daily Telegraph and Punch, get covered as well.

Language lovers everywhere will enjoy this lively read. And now I am hungry for some bangers and mash!
