    The UK to USA Dictionary


    Product description

    "Bob's Your Uncle" (all is well) with this dictionary of British English vs. American English. This handy guide is more than a dictionary of the "A to Zed" separating our common language. You may already know "boot" is the trunk, "bonnet" is hood, "lift" is elevator; but you may want to know what "toad in the hole," "bangers and mash," and "bubble and squeak" mean before ordering. Rhyming slang, pronunciation, spelling differences, conversion charts, cultural differences are just some of the extras. There's even a page on "UK Police Ranks and Abbreviations" to help those who read British authors or watch British films and TV. Great for travelers, Anglophiles, and expatriates on both sides "of the pond." "Take a shufti" inside — maybe you can "suss it out."
